Like any heavy machinery, dump trucks can be dangerous if they are not operated properly, and it is the responsibility of employers and site managers to ensure that their employees, visitors, and third parties are offered a safe working environment. Dumper truck training courses ensure that delegates have the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure the safe use of this type of machinery or vehicle.

Courses are available from industry relevant accreditation boards including CPCS, and the experienced SB Skills Solutions team can create and offer a customised training solution to your employees. This ensures that delegates are compliant with health and safety regulations, and further ensures that they have the core competencies to safely operate any machinery required. SB Skills Solutions Ltd’s instructors are qualified and experienced, and we can provide training to operators of any skill level.

Who Should Take Dumper Truck Training?

ADT training is an important health and safety requirement for dumper truck operators.

We can offer training to individuals from your organisation, as well as to groups.

Course Objectives

The objective of dumper driver training is to ensure the safety of sites where this machinery is used. The machines are heavy and can be potentially dangerous. Users will work towards receiving accreditation from the relevant board. In the case of CSPS dump truck training, the objective is for the candidate to successfully achieve their blue competence card.

What Will Participants Learn?

It is important that operators learn how their machinery and their working processes fit into the overall safety of a site. As such, an overall understanding of construction safety will be taught. Candidates will be taught how to assess the safety requirements of a site, how to conduct pre-checks of the machinery, and how to safely operate the dumper truck. They will also receive training on the safe shutdown and storage of the dump truck.

  • Current safety regulations governing dump truck use
  • How to operate the machine to a minimum standard

Course Accreditation

We offer loader compressor training from the following boards:

CPCS – The Construction Plant Competence Scheme is the most widely recognised accreditation scheme in the construction industry. Many organisations require that operators have CPCS cards, as part of their company policies. The A56 Rear Tip Dump Truck course from CPCS will reward a red trained operator card on completion, enabling candidates to go on and undertake the relevant Level 2 Plant Operations NVQ to enable them to obtain a blue competence card.

NPORS – National Plant Operators Registration Scheme is a widely recognised accreditation specialising in the construction sector.  On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a Red Competent Card which is valid for 2 years.  In that time delegates will be required to complete the relevant Level 2 Plant Operations NVQ in order to update their card to a Blue Competency Card.

In-House – If you need to provide additional safety elements to your employees, we can customise a training course to include all the elements and components that you require.
