Mentor's training receives AITT 'Excellence' status

2nd October 2020

We are delighted to have achieved AITT's new ‘Excellence’ standard following our latest training standards audit.

With all of our forklift training courses accredited by the association, Mentor is subject to regular reviews, but Excellence status is awarded to providers deemed to ‘go above and beyond the normal industry requirements’.

Amongst other measures, the accolade has come as a result of implementing robust internal and external monitoring schemes and annual audits for instructors using AITT documentation, to ensure training always meets required standards.

Excellence status is also reserved for providers who operate dedicated training centres and actively utilise the AITT’s ACORNS registration database, which we use to record details of all AITT accredited training courses.

Mentor has long provided AITT accredited training, offering a wide range of operator courses that span all types and sizes of forklift trucks, as well as regular instructor courses, held at our centres or customers’ sites across the UK.

With multiple training venues and up to 160 instructors delivering courses week on week, we are thrilled that our training provision has been recognised as consistently meeting the high AITT Excellence standard.

Adam Smith, Managing Director at AITT, added: “The AITT Excellence standard was created to acknowledge training providers who work to unrivalled standards and to highlight them as being among the best in the industry. Through its range of comprehensive courses, Mentor provides a high standard of training designed to improve safety, compliance and productivity within the materials handling sector. This is what we are looking for from our members, and the outstanding level of service on offer was clear in the audit. Mentor’s achievement of AITT Excellence is much deserved.”
