New International Standard Released

New International Standard for Plant Instructors is Released (24/07/2003)

As per previous OPERC events, the 7th meeting (hosted by Mr Richard Sharp, JCB Rocester) was an enormous success with many new members attending to learn further details on the new 'intelligent' and on-line health and safety test and also receive copies of the new best practice guide for plant and equipment instructors. The document is now available for purchase via our on-line order form or via [email protected] and contains core information on how to deliver learning materials effectively, how to develop learning materials and plant/instructor/equipment ratios.

At this meeting, the decision was taken to set-up a standards committee to develop a homogeneous set of standards that all OPERC members could aspire to when delivering basic training. The activities of the sub-committee will be reported upon in due course.
