The ALLMI Operator Course consists of 15 modules and is either one or two days in duration (depending on whether the candidate is a novice or experienced operator). Both the one- and two-days courses culminate in a written and practical examination.
The assessment process is set by ALLMI Ltd and administered by the instructor. It consists of two theoretical assessment and one practical. The theoretical assessment consists of a set of core multiple choice and ‘open’ questions, as well as questions which relate specifically to the crane attachment being used. The practical assessment is designed to identify whether the candidate has the appropriate practical skills to operate a lorry loader safely and efficiently.
