Lantra are one of the leading awarding bodies for land-based industries in both the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

The courses are developed by industry experts who know the sector inside out. They include a mix of training only and assessed training options and are packed with practical skills and technical content to help you develop and succeed in your career.
Lantra only work with the very best training Provider companies, Instructors and Assessors the industry has to offer and with Contour Training Ltd, finding the right Lantra accredited course has never been easier.
Operators with little or no experience on a particular plant category should undertake training, the duration, content and structure of which is set by Lantra Awards and delivered by accredited providers such as Contour Training.
EXPERIENCED OPERATOR – WITH TRAINING
Operators using this route may have some experience on a particular category, but not enough to proceed directly to assessment. In this case their level of competence and experience is judged by one of Contour Training’s expert instructors and we then agree with the client the appropriate training duration to be undertaken before assessment.
EXPERIENCED OPERATOR – REQUIRING NO TRAINING
This route is appropriate when operators have sufficient experience and working knowledge of the machine to be able to progress straight to assessment with no need for any further training. It is the shortest and most cost effective route, but managers should ensure that only competent and experienced operators are entered onto this route to abide by their responsibilities as an employer to provide adequate and appropriate training.
