FORS Practitioner Recertification – reminder

RecertificationFORS Practitioners whose qualification is expiring between now and the end of June 2018 are encouraged to attend the forthcoming Recertification workshop running in February. This is an invitation only workshop and eligible delegates will have received an email inviting them to attend.

The FORS Practitioner qualification is valid for five years and to support FORS Practitioners with their recertification, FORS introduced the one-day workshop last year to provide attendees with the opportunity to renew their qualification and refresh their knowledge.

FORS Practitioner qualification can help you to meet a number of the FORS Standard requirements, including M3 Responsible Person, S7 Fuel and Emissions, S8 Road Risk and G6 Professional Development. Please note that the Recertification workshop does not cover workshop 10 ‘Managing noise in logistics’ and you are encouraged to attend this separately. For information about workshop 10, and to book a place, please click here.

The first Practitioner Recertification workshop took place last year and was judged by attendees to be “extremely useful.”

Geraint Davies, General Manager at John Raymond Transport Limited first completed the FORS Practitioner series when it was initially introduced five years ago. He has now undertaken the FORS Practitioner Recertification and said:

“It’s a good platform for reinforcing existing knowledge. The requirements of local authorities, as well as FORS, have changed in the past five years and we need to stay up to date with the latest developments. John Raymond Transport has FORS Gold accreditation, but this workshop is a comprehensive and succinct guide to the latest FORS Standard. The trainers are very knowledgeable, their enthusiasm drives the sessions and they clearly know their stuff.”

If you think you are eligible to attend the Recertification workshop but have not received an email, please contact the helpline on 08448 09 09 44 or email enquiries@fors-online.org.uk.

Further dates will be released later in the year for those whose certificate expires from June 2018 onwards, or who were unable to attend the previous dates.
