Banksman training courses are carried our by our sister company Total Training and can be run in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket, Newmarket and other surrounding areas of Suffolk at your own site (please contact us for Essex, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire).  The aim is to train your employees in the procedures of a vehicle banksman.  An instructor will attend for a full day to train novices and provide refreshers for existing operatives.

This course is a must for anyone who is responsible for assisting in the manoeuvring of vehicles on and off your site.  Your staff will receive the required training in order to become competent in giving assistance to drivers manoeuvring vehicles within a limited amount of space.

On completion of an assessment carried out on the candidates, they will each be issued with a Certificate of Competence.


Courses are conducted at your premises using your own vehicle (rigid or articulated) and equipment.  A driver for the vehicle will be required – this can be an alternation of the candidates or if none are familiar with driving you will be required to provide a driver for the length of the course.  We are able to provide a driver but this will be at an additional cost.
