Additional Information

Course Info

ALLMI – Lorry Loader

The ALLMI Operator course consists of 15 modules (depending on whether the candidate is a novice or experienced operator). Both the one and two day courses culminate in a written and practical examination.  ALLMI is notified (by our team) of all courses in advance of the training taking place. The assessment process is set by ALLMI and administered by our instructor. It consists of two theoretical assessments and one practical. The theoretical assessments consist of a set of multiple choice and ‘open’ questions, as well as questions which relate specifically to the crane attachment being used. The practical assessment is designed to identify whether the candidate has the appropriate practical skills to operate a lorry loader safely and efficiently.


The HIAB Experienced Operator ALLMI course is catered for candidates that have previous experience, with no formal training or certification of operating a lorry mounted crane. This 1-day course starts at 09:00 and ends at 16:30 on both training days and runs on a 3 students to one instructor ratio.


If this course is successfully completed, the successful candidates:

  • Will receive an identity card and pass certificate
  • Be registered on the ALLMI Operator database
  • Receive the ALLMI Operator’s manual

The certificate and identity car are valid for five years after they have been attained, after which a refresher course and assessment will need to be completed. The identity card and certificate will show which show which categories the operator is licensed to use.

ALLMI Operator training is the UK’s only lorry loader training programme to be commended by the Health & Safety Executive. The programme is also recognised by Build UK and is referenced within the organisation’s official “Training Standard”.


Our HIAB Experienced Operator ALLMI course is available to be completed at any of our 3 training depots which includes centres in Portsmouth, Reading and Worthing.

Course Reviews

Great HIAB course, Wayne was excellent - thanks again


I highly recommend 2 Start training. Due to having some spare time on my hands I decided to take some courses to improve my chances of being offered a different variety of work. I have just completed my HIAB training, ADR course, Moffett and counterbalance forklift course. I successfully passed them all. The quality and standard of training is excellent and I am planning to do my slingers course although since passing the courses I have already have had many of offers of work so will now need to find the time! Many thanks to Alan, Paul and Joe for the training and Daisy for her efficient and prompt organisation of the courses.


I had training from 2 Start towards both my Class 2 and Class 1 LGV tests. I didn't therefore have any hesitation when I needed to undertake ALLMI Lorry Loader training too. The whole experience from initial enquiry to training and ultimately theory and practical tests was superlative. I'd highly recommend them for any training you might need in this sector. The office staff and instructors are consumate professionals.
