changes to aitt instructor course

AITT instructorFollowing a recent AITT standards committee, it has been agreed that the prerequisites for the AITT instructor course will be changed.

Changes to the course prerequisites will now mean that candidates attending the 10 day AITT instructor course, must hold an accredited operator certificate, relevant for the course being attended, (e.g Counterbalance or Reach Truck), issued by a training provider accredited by an ABA member. (AITT, ITSSAR, RTITB or NPORS) 
The certificate must also display a traceable registration number for the candidate. (e.g ACORNS/TOPS/NORS) to validate it is an accredited certificate.

Any candidates that attend the course without the above being in place, will not be registered onto the AITT instructor database. (Even if a test is conducted at the start of the 10 day course)
It is strongly recommended that candidates attending a re-registration course, or a direct entry AITT instructor course, also ensure that their operator certificate, is also refresher within the last 3 years before the course.
These changes will take effect from 1st March 2021. Any questions, please contact the AITT office.
