The app allows candidates and instructors to use tablets that communicate with one another, so there is no need to print test papers, records of training, registration forms or any other paperwork.

Explains RTITB managing director Laura Nelson: “In working closely with training providers, both commercial and in-house, it became very clear to us that a completely paperless solution for training administration and assessment would be hugely beneficial to our industry, both in terms of cost reduction and time savings.

“MyRTITB TrainingFriend PRO has been developed specifically to support businesses and instructors, ensuring that they can meet their training paperwork and compliance needs, as well as ensuring the accuracy of the data collected and tests administered.”

RTITB will be providing full support to those using the app, which covers training for more than 120 types of machine.

Instructors can use the app for counterbalance, reach, rough terrain telescopic and pallet truck training, plus training for powered access equipment (MEWPs), lorry loaders, cranes and many more.

Continues Nelson: “The app will enable instructors to do what they do best – training, not paperwork. This solution is expected to pay for itself in a very short time, so is ideal for training providers large and small, as well as in-house instructors and training teams.”
