We have been training people in getting their Light Rigid licence for several years, and recently updated out LR Bus that we use for running the course. Lately we have had several students applying for their Light Rigid Licence so that they can drive an ambulance! We have been thrilled to help out people getting in to this most trusted profession. Here are some of the stories from our blog.
The Light Rigid Licence course is run in two parts. Firstly with the trainer, and then with an assessor. Generally it is completed in just one day, although occasionally we ask students to spend a little more time on one or more particular skill in practice before their assessment.
