MiDAS Car MPV Observers Course

MiDAS Car and MPV Observers Course

Car and MPV

Our MiDAS Car MPV Observers Course is designed to train the trainer to deliver the same level of training to their car and MPV drivers as the minibus drivers get under the MiDAS scheme. The one day course can be delivered at your premises using your equipment or at our premises using ours. Usually we advise using the equipment the delegates are used to using.

The following extract is from the CTA website and outlines the course for the drivers.

MiDAS Car & MPV provides the opportunity for organisations operating smaller vehicles, or voluntary car schemes, to deliver the same level of training to their drivers as MiDAS gives to minibus drivers, including regular refresher training.

It follows the same modular format, providing drivers with the information they need to provide safe and comfortable transport for their passengers.  There is additional training for those who may be driving accessible MPV’s and passenger assistance training for those who may be transporting passengers with disabilities in saloon cars.  There is also an on-road element, where drivers undertake an ‘Observed Drive’ during which they can demonstrate the skills learned in the classroom.
