NHSS Remote Training

Since mid-March we have been exploring alternative methods of training delivery to give our Providers and Instructors the opportunity to continue to deliver classroom-based training online. This will enable the workforce in this important sector, traffic management and safety fencing, to maintain their skills on their cards as usual by training in a safe environment.    

We recognise that our Instructors are an integral part of the training for their technical knowledge, experience and interactive skills, therefore we have chosen a platform which allows the Instructor to be visible to the Learners at all times and is able to, for example, deliver a PowerPoint Presentation and share course material whilst still in full conversation with the group.

These courses are a great way to address the current challenge industry has in ensuring that the currency of skills is maintained and the workforce remains safe in carrying out their roles. The courses are delivered under controlled conditions by the Instructor with a proctored solution for the online end of course test, which guarantees verification of the Learner through ongoing monitoring during the test.  Please click here to see available training and tests and which Providers are registered to offer them.

With an extensive network of quality assured Providers and Instructors, you can be confident Lantra has the solution for all your temporary traffic management requirements.
