To become a certified professional of the Rescue and Recovery Industry in the United Kingdom it is necessary for candidates to attend training sessions
at approved establishments to demonstrate their abilities and skills before being permitted to work on Britain's road network.
Midhurst Engineering is able to offer training on a number of modules, either at or our training venue in Alton or at your premises.
Overview of VR Module Training
Training of Recovery Operators has been redefined under the new VR Modules. This has been driven by the Highways Agency and will probably be written
into PAS43;2008 due out in March 2008. It is expected to give a time scale for training all operators to this standard and the inclusion in PAS43
will obviously affect all Recovery Operators.
Modular Training has split the training of operators into categories more suitable for learning and practical testing. The operator only needs to
pass the relevant modules for the type of work they will be doing and hopefully be better trained.
There are three Core Modules that all operators need to pass:
- Vr01 Health and Safety
- Vr02 Customer Service
- Vr03 Roadside Safety
Passing these three modules will grant the operator their
Roadside Technician ID card as required by the Highways Agency.
Further modules can be chosen suitable to the work they will be doing.
- Vr04 Service Van
- Vr05 Spec Lift
- Vr06 Light Transporter
- Vr07 Off Road Winching
- Vr17 Lorry Loader Crane
- Vr19 Preservation of Evidence
