Modal Training, the Humber region’s new £7m training centre of excellence for the ports, energy and logistics sectors, is now taking bookings for a number of road courses that have been launched ahead of the facility opening in early 2017.
The courses are classroom-based and cover basic safety, competencies and proficiencies for individuals and businesses.
They include: Transport Manager Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC), Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC), ADR Hazardous Goods, fuel and driver efficiency, health and safety, and legislation.
The driving and road courses also incorporate the DriverMetrics Driver Risk Index, the world’s number one behavioural driving safety programme. Modal Training can help businesses analyse the profile of their drivers and their behaviour using software to identify areas to make them safer or more efficient on the road. Training will then be provided to improve their skills.
Jointly funded by the Grimsby Institute and the Humber LEP, as part of the Humber Growth Deal, Modal Training will be located in purpose-designed 5,696m2 facilities on Kings Road in Immingham.
