As a company you can decide whether your operators are registered with the “RTITB” or receive “In Company” certification. The standard of training delivered by our instructors is the same, regardless. However, we would always recommend selecting the RTITB Option when booking, and, receive the benefits of placing operators on the National Operators Registration Scheme (NORS). Please contact the office for further information regarding these courses or if you are having difficulty booking these courses online.
