Due to its popularity, EP Training run ADR courses most weeks of the year. As an approved Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) training centre, we are able to offer all 9 classes and modules.
EP Training is one of a handful of companies in the UK that run the ADR explosives (class 1) and ADR radioactive (class 7) courses. Training for these specialist classes runs every 6 weeks. We can also run ADR courses ‘in-house’ if preferred.
On successful completion of the course and exams, students will receive an ADR Vocational Training Certificate (ADR VTC). The details of the VTC will vary depending on the class or classes chosen. In order to achieve a certificate, students must complete the core module, the package module and/or the tanker module and at least one class of dangerous goods.
