Introducing BRITTOp

BRITTOp is the newest accreditation body and registration scheme for trainers, training providers and operators in the warehouse, plant and construction industries.

Although we are new to the market, we most certainly are not new to these industries.

Scissor Lift Training Courses Available.

Why is BRITTOp the New Accreditation Scheme for Training Courses?

We felt that the current Accreditation Systems, although well meaning, are stuck in a time warp.

We live in an age of change.

Machinery has changed for the better since the 70's and 80's but we are running the same courses that we were running back then.

And the powers that be have played about with the practical test marking forms and created lots of new questions.

But these are used AFTER training which we think is totally unsatisfactory.

We felt that there was a need for change, and so we set up BRITTOp.

BRITTOp the New Awarding Body & Registration Scheme for Training Courses

BRITTOp, the new training courses awarding body and registration scheme, has been set up to be:
- transparent,
- a national registration scheme, and
- less expensive.

And, ALL the members of BRITTOp can air their views about changes, improvements and complaints.

In fact, we welcome such feedback.

Benefits of BRITTOp

As mentioned above, any concerns our members have are welcome and can be raised through our online members only discussion forum <<(link)>>, instead of waiting for the next general meeting.

Also. instead of committees, we want all our members to be involved in our fairly democratic decision making process.

In fact, we want and need our members to help bring about real improvements in the training courses of the warehouse, plant and construction industries.

We have already made a start with a fast and simple:
- online registration system, and
- members ID cards: unique "in-house" training cards that are delivered swiftly.

We are also discussing changes to improve operator and instructor training standards.

BRITTOp Quality Affordable Service

We pride ourselves in delivering quality service at competitive prices for you, the training providers.

Forklift Training Courses Available.

More to Come...

There is still a lot to do to bring about real improvements that benefit our members and their customers.
