It is now officially a week until we will be exhibiting at the FORS Members Conference for 2018, after such an enjoyable and educating experience last year we could not turn down the invitation this year.
There have been a lot of changes since we first exhibited last year. One of the major talking points for us last year was our brand-new training website, which we specifically launched in time for the FORS Members Conference. However, a year on and the website is now established on Google and seems as if it was launched a long time ago. The impact of the brand-new website has been vital in helping to create and promote a distinct image for Seven Training – previously Seven Asset Training Services.
FORS accredited Safe Urban Driving courses continue to be a popular choice among transport operators with fresh enquiries frequently coming in, based on our training enquiries you may even be able to form an argument suggesting the popularity and number of companies gaining FORS accreditation has increased over the last year. While we have also had a number of operators complete their Van Smart training with us recently, it is really encouraging to see some of the large van fleets within the United Kingdom actively trying to increase road safety.
We are keen to promote the message that these courses do not have to be delivered within London. At last year’s conference we had a number of conversations whereby people were not aware that we could deliver training at their workplace. However, we specifically designed our training van to be able to do that, enabling our customers to complete their training with minimal inconvenience. To date our new enquiries are still surprised to hear that we will come to them in order to deliver their training course, as a training provider we want to help increase road safety and make these training courses as enjoyable, educating and easy as possible for companies to complete.
There are still too many cycle related accidents happening on our roads within the United Kingdom and urban cities, especially within London where thousands of people commute to work every day. As recently as the 26h of September there was a newspaper article about a woman who had been hit by a truck while cycling to work in rush hour and suffered potentially life changing injuries, these incidents continue to regularly happen which only increases the need for more focus on road safety training such as Safe Urban Driving moving forward. After the clear success of Safe Urban Driving and the FORS standard more initiatives are sure to follow in the coming years, we look forward to seeing the continued progress of FORS over the coming years. Everyone should be able to commute to work without feeling vulnerable on the road.
"Seven Training provided good training locations and facilities for all courses delivered. Our drivers all said the CPC courses were very enjoyable and engaging, they particularly liked the trainers use of their personal experiences rather than using slide shows of other incidents. "
"The trainer utilised very good content to back up his impressive subject knowledge when making his points. The high-quality training equipment and environment also contributed to making this an enjoyable day, I would definitely use Seven Driver Training again."
"The trainers delivery style ensured the learners were fully engaged, giving them the opportunity to practice their skills significantly prior to assessment"
"The trainer identified each trainee learning style and asked questions appropriate to meet their learning needs, he had established a good rapport with his audience and easily engaged them in practical activities and discussions"
