Is this course for me?

This half day course is aimed at the drivers of lorries and tankers responsible for delivering wood pellets to site. Management will also benefit from attending to gain an understanding of issues encountered and methods of preventing or dealing with them.

Pellet manufacturers and multi-national companies handling pellets might also benefit from our range of short courses for industry, covering a variety of bulk materials handling subjects.

If you are unsure if any course is suitable for you, please contact us for advice.

Venue

Your own home or office! You will be provided with a link via email to join the session. You will need access to a laptop or PC. The course does not work well via your phone.

Cancellation

Delegate places may be credited up to 2 weeks before the start of the course, at our discretion. After this time, no credits will be available. In this case, delegates are welcome to transfer to another course free of charge or substitutions can be made. In the event of a delegate leaving the company within 2 weeks of a course date, their registration will be transferred to a future course for their replacement/another staff member.

Where a company books a course for their own staff only, the fee will be agreed at the time of booking and cancellations will not be credited.

If a high number of cancellations are received for any one course, we reserve the right to cancel and re-schedule the whole course.

Course certificates

Attendance certificates are provided for all delegates upon completion of the course and receipt of payment. Copies are not kept on file. Should duplicate certificates be required, we reserve the right to charge an admin fee of £25 per occasion (not per certificate). If you are the keeper of certificates for your company please ensure you speak directly to each Driver as and when they complete the course, to obtain their certificate from them.
