Yard Shunter Training
What Is It?
Yard Shunters are operatives with the
training and skills to move vehicles safely around site.
It is more beneficial to you if we carry
out the training at your own site to enable us to make the training specific to the vehicle movements you require. However, we can deliver a generic programme at our training centre in Devizes.
This course is run over either 1 or 2 days
depending on the level of the candidates' competence. Competent drivers should only have to complete 1 day of training with us, novice drivers will need to complete 2 days of training.
The course is specifically tailored to each
customer, but will include:
- Drivers’ Responsibilities.
- Daily Vehicle Checks.
- Familiarisation with the Vehicle.
- Safety Techniques.
- Coupling and Uncoupling - if required.
