Training With CTLA

It is so important that your paid staff and volunteers are appropriately trained to ensure the comfort and safety of your members, passengers and clients.

The MiDAS (Minibus and Diver Awareness Training) scheme is a nationally recognised assessment and training scheme for minibus drivers and with East Sussex schools and colleges, care centres, and county community transport operators.

MIDAS : Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme : Government Link

MIDAS is a nationally recognised scheme for Volunteer drivers and drivers with or without a D1.

The aim of CTLA is to make sure each candidate successfully completes the training to the Midas standard and that you are a calm, confident and safe minibus driver.

This scheme is open to any organisation that operates or uses minibuses, from small voluntary organisations operating a single vehicle, to local authorities operating large fleets of minibuses as well as schools, colleges and universities.

You will receive classroom training and practical on the road training. In addition, here at CTLA we also offer Accessible training. You will learn how to provide a safe, legal and caring journey for your passengers and to assist and support passengers with disabilities. This includes how to safely secure a wheel chair ensuring your passenger is safe and feels confident to travel in your bus. On successful completion of the course, you will receive a Midas certificate.

For more information on the Midas scheme please call CTLA on 01273 517332 or e-mail the transport manager : Shem@ctla.org.uk

    CTLA is also looking for local volunteers to get involved, join our team and donate your time – however much time you want – helping support community passengers to get out and about.

    These include volunteer Drivers (D1 licence required) for which MiDAS training is provided and also for Passenger Assistants for which additional training will be provided.

    Help is also required to help with publicity and fund raising.
