The ALLMI Slinger/Signaller course content is very comprehensive and so cardholders are able to use their skills when performing Slinger/Signaller duties with other types of lifting equipment, not just lorry loaders.
A Slinger Signaller is also known as a Slinger Banksman. Hand signals are a part of a Banksman's day to day role to enforce safe lorry loading.
The duration of your Slinger Signaller training course will vary depending on your current experience and ability level, with experienced candidates needing one day to complete their training, and novices needing two days. There are a maximum of four candidates allowed to attend a course.
Our helpful and friendly team will help you every step of the way, helping you decide which of our available courses is the ideal one for you!
The assessment process is set by ALLMI Ltd and administered by the Instructor. It consists of two theoretical assessments and one practical. The theoretical assessments consist of a set of multiple-choice and ‘open’ questions. The practical assessment is designed to identify whether the candidate has the appropriate practical skills to perform their duties as a Slinger / Signaller safely and efficiently.
Upon successful completion of the course, every candidate will receive an identity card and certificate and will be registered on the ALLMI database.
The certificate and identity card are valid for five years, after which time refresher training and assessments will need to be undertaken. Candidates also receive the ALLMI Slinger / Signaller manual, which is used as a reference guide throughout their career. It is important to remain up to date and compliant, which will show to employers that you have a high standard of training.
