Independents’ Weekend: Peterborough logistics training company open for business again

Altta is an amalgamation of three local training companies that came together in 2013 to merge their experience and business models and give a high-quality service to the logistics and transport sector.

Now, as lockdown eases and industries head back to the workplace, Altta Group Limited is ensuring that managers know it is ready to start up training sessions once again. Those going back to work will need to know that legal and compliance certificates are up to date.

The training courses on offer from Altta are varied and diverse, with instructors from a wide range of backgrounds, including:

  • LGV drivers for Tesco, Ikea, Argos and other major retailers
  • Fork lift operators for Argos, British Gas, Barloworld, Freemans catalogues
  • London Fire Brigade
  • ADI car instructor
  • Health and Safety Representatives
  • Fire Wardens
  • Company First Aiders
  • NVQ Assessors/ Internal verifiers
  • Mechanics
  • National/International CPC holders for Road haulage and Passenger Transport
  • Transport Managers

The company has a strong belief that instructors should have relevant work experience in the fields in which they are teaching to deliver the right standard of training.

Colin Frost, director of Altta, said: “Like so many other businesses, the COVID-19 outbreak has hit us hard but we are pleased to say we are now open for business again. 

“We have taken a lot of precautionary steps and will continue to do so. We have had to re-shape our business and fingers crossed it pays off.”

Capacity for training courses has been halved, with all candidates being asked to complete a COVID-19 check form and a temperature test before they are allowed to enter the warehouse. Personal protective equipment is provided, as is hand sanitiser, and training that can be completed remotely is being done so to reduce face-to-face contact.
