New awarding body formed

Wednesday, 19 June 2019 ( #928 ) - Liverpool, United Kingdom
A new awarding body has been established for the warehousing plant and construction training industries in the UK. According to the website, BRITTOp has over 40 years of hands-on experience in the training industry and website/database development. "We understand training providers' and operators' needs and will work with you to improve standards," it claims. BRITTOp offers assistance with training for the warehousing, plant and construction industries. "We felt that the current Accreditation Systems, although well-meaning, are stuck in a time warp. We live in an age of change," the new company claims. "Machinery has changed for the better but we are running the same courses that we were running in the '70s and '80s." BRITTOp claims to be a less expensive "transparent national registration scheme where ALL members can air their views about changes, improvements and complaints through our discussion forum instead of waiting for the next general meeting". BRITTOp is a member of the British Safety Council and the Highway Plant and Equipment Research Centre.
