FTA Launches Online Operator Licensing Training

THE FTA has launched an online version of the Operator Licence Awareness Training Course (OLAT) so operators can continue vital compliance training under the government’s ‘social distancing’ rules.
The e-OLAT will form one of six training courses now available to access online; FTA has temporarily suspended all face-to-face training events under COVID-19 government guidance.
Keith Gray, general manager of training, audits and standards at FTA commented: ‘While the government has now restricted use of classroom based, face-to-face training under its ‘social distancing’ rules, the need for transport operators to run their fleets safely, efficiently, and in line with government regulation remains the same.
‘To help logistics businesses keep their operations running as smoothly as possible, e-OLAT can be delivered through a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).’
