Allmi Training Accrediatations

ALLMI runs a training accreditation service and standards body for the lorry loader industry. The aim of ALLMI training is to raise the standard of lorry loader operators and instructors throughout the UK. This is achieved by providing a comprehensive training programme for operators of lorry loaders as well as accreditation for instructors.
ALLMI’s objectives with regard to training are:

  • To ensure that standards and qualifications for all instructors are in place, consistent and maintained.
  • To ensure that all operators receive sufficient quality of training to be able to operate a lorry loader in a safe and efficient manner.
  • To offer a competitive and nationally recognised training programme for instructors and operators of lorry loaders.
Allmi

ALLMI is the only organisation in the UK to be devoted exclusively to lorry loaders and because of this it delivers the highest level of training standards within this specialist area. Its training scheme is supported by the UK's loader crane manufacturers and importers, and is recognised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Representatives from these organisations sit on the ALLMI Training Standards Committee, which develops and maintains the training scheme.

The ALLMI training programme is designed to meet employers’ and employees’ responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, as well as the requirements of all other legislation relating to the operation of lorry loaders.

ALLMI training is the UK’s only lorry loader training programme to be commended by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).

Operator Training

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 day courses culminate in a written and practical examination. ALLMI is notified (by the instructor) of all courses in advance of the training taking place (via ALLMI's online registration system), so that unannounced instructor audits can be carried out.

The assessment process is set by ALLMI and administered by the instructor. It consists of two theoretical assessments and one practical. The theoretical assessments consist of a set of core multiple choices 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.

Upon successful completion of the course, every candidate will receive an identity card and certificate, and will be registered on the ALLMI Operator database.. The certificate and identity card are valid for five years, after which time refresher training and assessments will need to be undertaken. Both the identity card and certificate state the categories for which the operator is licensed. Candidates also receive the ALLMI Operator’s manual, which is used as a reference guide throughout their career.

The strength of ALLMI training comes from the technical and training knowledge on its Training Standards Committee. The Committee is made up of training and technical professionals from all the major loader crane manufacturers and importers within the UK. In addition, the Health and Safety Executive is represented. The Committee develops, consults upon and maintains all the training standards set by ALLMI.
