B+E training around the UK

Is there a list of UK providers for B+E training anywhere as I often come across people asking for trainers in their area?

Re: B+E training around the UK

Being you have asked the question ROG I am putting my name forward, and I have been teaching B+E in the Exeter area for 12 plus years.
Having been an ADI for very nearly 19 years and an owner operator of C+E trucks for 17 years before my ADI badge, I feel I am suitably qualified to teach B+E.
Having taught LGV C and C+E for 2 year back in the days of flatbed vehicles. I did up grade to a 13 ton box for a time but could not make it pay so start teaching B+E.
If you google B+E training in Exeter you will see me near the top. Lately I do more B+E than B.

The DSA are carrying out B+E training at cardington for the Highways Agency staff.
DSA's Mark McGee says it's OK because you don't ned to be an ADI to teach B+E

Re: B+E training around the UK

If you're correct Roadmaster, then surely there is a conflict of interest.

I would have thought this was outside the remit of the DSA.

I will have to see if its possible to train and test my pupils, and get paid for each element. Nice work if you can get it.

PS. It's Mark Magee

Re: B+E training around the UK

Back in the 70s I trained in-house for my first licence in a 7.5 tonner

All 3 trainers were also delegated DSA examiners

Whoever did the training could not conduct the test

I think you are mistaken, because DSA didn't exist in the '70.

I assumed DSA or whatever it was then - the situation was as described

Re: B+E training around the UK

Hi
Back in the early 70's it was the Ministry of Transport, later it became the Dept of the Environment.
Delegated examiners have been used for years by different organisations, the main one people know about is the millitary whose examiners get Cardington training.
When I got my private pilot's licence I was taught by a number of instructors at the flying school and my practical test was taken by the Chief Flying Instructor at the same school. He was a fascinating chap, ex test pilot who flew the original magnetic mine destroying (de-gauzing ring) Wellington test flights.
