ATV Operations Training - Sit in

About the course

This one-day certificate of training course covering legislation, safety, risk assessment, operation of vehicle and rider techniques is designed to cover the Provisions and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998, for operators that use Sit-In ATV’s as part of their work equipment or transport. The course will briefly cover routine servicing and maintenance of the machines. The use of the machine with trailers, trailed implements and carrying loads can also be covered if required.

This course can also be booked as an NPTC City & Guilds certificate of competency qualification course; this is an extra £50 per candidate registration fees. Unfortunately, this cannot be upgraded from a certificate of training on the training day, prior booking is required.

Agricultural Engineering

Agricultural engineering involves the development, operation, maintenance and testing of highly specialised agricultural machinery. Students learn practical skills such as how agricultural machines work, maintenance techniques, welding and fabrication and machinery repair. 

The courses incorporate a mix of practicals, classroom lectures, industry visits and case study exercises, including assessment in practicals and written assignments. Employers are keen to employ Myerscough students as they have both the practical workshop skills and the managerial expertise that they require.
