All MSA Licensed Recovery Assessors and Trainers attended a recent Train the Trainers course in Shropshire. The LANTRA Technical Award in Health and Safety and Risk Management in Winching covered all aspects of safe winching techniques and provided delegates with a nationally recognised qualification. Richard Madge, a LANTRA approved Trainer, provided the course.

Ian Culbert, Chairman of the Association of Motorsport Recovery Operators (AMRO), said: "The AMRO, whose membershhip is made up of around 80 per cent of all MSA licensed Recovery units and crews, were delighted to have been asked to take part. The opportnuity to receive formal training to a recognised national standard was very welcome, and it was also a good opportunity for Trainers and Assessors from all parts of the UK to get together and share knowledge and ideas."

Feedback from attendees was also positive. James Bates, an MSA Recovery Assessor, Trainer and unit operator, said: "For a one-day course it was very informative and having the chance to work together and share ideas with other assessors was a huge advantage to all of us, and we all took new ideas and techniques away with us. We all look forward to sharing these techniques and skills with other crews around the country."
