The ALLMI Slinger/Signaller Course content is very comprehensive. This enables cardholders are able to use their skills when performing Slinger / Signaller duties with any type of lifting equipment, not just lorry loaders. The Slinger / Signaller Course consists of 13 modules. The course direction is one day for experienced candidates and a minimum of two days for novice candidates. A maximum of four candidates can attend a course. Both 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 assessments and one practical. The theoretical assessment consists of a set of multiple choice and ‘open’ questions. The practical assessment is designed to identify whether the candidate has the appropriate practical skills to perform his / her duties as a Slinger / Signaller safely and efficiently.
