Lot’s of P’s to get through in our series of short blogs looking at the A to Z of courses we do, so today P is for Plant Mover – this is the none operational duties course aimed at people who move equipment but do not use them in an operational way.   For example an engineer who may need to move an Excavator but would never need to use the machine to dig.

Course ratios – Plant Mover

Before we look at the course durations, training and testing ratios, we just quickly would like to mention the categories available for this course.

  • Lifting Equipment
  • Earthmoving Equipment
  • Accessing Equipment
  • and Other.

With in these categories there are different variations of machinery

  • Wheeled Articulated up to 15T
  • Wheeled Articulated over 15T
  • Wheeled Rigid up to 15T
  • Wheeled Rigid over 15T
  • Tracked up to 10T
  • Tracked over 10T
  • Ride on roller

So, between the categories and the variations this allows for multiple combination of testing options.   Each candidate is allowed to complete 3 tests each, i.e 3 different variations.

Novice : 2 days : 6 Delegates (maximum of 18 tests)

Refresher and Test : 1 day : 6 Delegates (18 tests)

Experienced Worker Assessments : 1 day for up to 8 Delegates, 3 tests each so a maximum of 24 tests in the day
