ADR Training Courses:

What is ADR ?

ADR is "The Carriage of Dangerous Goods By Road (Driver Training) Regulations". These regulations cover the training of drivers carrying dangerous goods in tanks and packages. In order to be legally qualified to drive a vehicle carrying dangerous goods, a driver must be in possession of an ADR vocational training certificate issued by the appropriate authority.

All drivers within the scope of the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (Driver Training) Regulations 1996 must be trained and hold a Vocational Training Certificate issued by DVLA. This is required by UK regulations implementing the relevant EU directive.

 

ADR Courses


We are an accredited provider of ADR course, registered with the Department of Transport #N049 and a member of the National Dangerous Goods Training Consortium (NDGTC).

We are accredited to provide course for both tankers and packages in ALL classes of chemicals including explosive and radioactive materials.

The length of the training course is determined by the number of modules required and minimum time standards are laid down by the Examining Board who verify and examine the ADR scheme. The minimum period of time for a course is two days. This includes the core module, packages module and one class. To complete all the classes takes a further two days making the course fours days in all. For tankers it is usual for just one class to be studied, however the minimum time for this is now three days rising to five days for completion of all the classes.

The time limit for retakes is three months after receipt of results, during which time only the exam needs to be resat otherwise the individual module price applies.

Refresher training is also available and takes a minimum of two days except. Similar exams to the full course are used and so drivers will need to feel happy with the depth of refresher training in order to succeed. Failure of a module on a refresher course will require attendance on an initial course for the failed module(s).

The length of the training course is determined by the number of modules required and minimum time standards are laid down by the Examining Board who verify and administer the ADR scheme.

The minimum period of time for a course is currently two days. This includes the core module, packages module and one class. To complete all the classes takes a further two days making the course four days in all. For tankers it is common for just one class to be studied, however the minimum time for this is now three days rising to five days for completion of all the classes except explosives and radioactive materials.

Additional modules can be added at any time in the five years of the validity period but will have to be refreshed at the same time as the core module.

Examinations

Each course culminates in a number of multiple choice exam papers depending on the modules selected. The candidate must achieve a 70% pass in each paper. To obtain an ADR Vocational Training Certificate requires passes in at least the Core, Packages or Tanks, and one class module.

Passing any paper will result in a credit being awarded by the examinations board for that paper. Failed modules will require the candidate to retake the module within three months after receipt of results, during which time only the failed exam paper needs to be retaken. After this time the training module must also be attended. If the candidate fails to attain a certificate within twelve months all modules must be retaken in their entirety.

Content

The ADR Awareness course is an attendance course and has no formal syllabus. There is, however, a legal requirement for Companies, involved in the carriage of hazardous goods by road, to provide training for all personnel involved in such movements.

RLR has developed an Awareness Training Program based on many years experience within the industry. The course has been designed to give our customers the confidence that they have satisfied the due diligence requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act and The Management of Health and Safety Regulations with respect to training and provision of information for employees.

The program is designed to heighten the awareness of personnel other than drivers and to explain their legal responsibilities under the UK Carriage Regulations and ADR.

The courses are delivered by DFT registered ADR instructors or Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors.

The course covers all aspects of the movement of goods including correct selection and labeling of packages; consignors’, driver controllers’ and loaders’ responsibilities; fork lift operations including handling of dangerous goods; emergency information for drivers; security in transport and dealing with spillages and environmental contaminants. The course can also be tailored to individual customers’ requirements.

Examinations

There is no formal examination for this course. While there is no legal requirement for refresher training – other than the general requirement to ensure operational changes are communicated to affected personnel – it is recommended that such training is completed every two to three years to stay abreast of changes in the regulations.

Candidates will be provided with RLR Services certification for the course.
