IVR Training Courses

IVR Training, Courses & Modules


There are many reasons to train employees..

Health & Safety legislation is a prime reason, as it provides some protection for the employer, when things go wrong. However, it is not the only reason to train, there are many proven benefits of good training carried out by a qualified & experienced instructor, these include:

  • The provision of a ‘safer’ working environment.
  • Retention of staff & increased productivity.
  • Retention of customers.
  • Vehicles & Equipment being used  professionally, correctly & safely, thereby reducing costs, damage & downtime.
  • Qualified, happier & more content staff with achievable aims & goals.


Refresher Courses

Your Company Staff may be already qualified in the operation of  Recovery Vehicles & Roadside Safety Procedures, but require re-qualification & certification.

Tim Hughes Training Services can provide a 5 yearly refresher programme, leading to re-qualification without the need for repeating basic training, saving you time & money.

Here at THTS our primary objective is to improve the safety of Roadside/Recovery Technicians across all sectors within the industry, it is our belief that it is morally & legally wrong to send an untrained employee out to do a dangerous job without the correct training.


IVR Training Modules

The IVR Training modules form a joint effort from the Automotive Skills body & The Institute of Vehicle Recovery for their certification & training programme of Recovery Operators.

They have now become the industry standard NOS (National Occupational Standards) for the Rescue & Recovery Industry.
Specified by the National Highways Sector Scheme Main-Committee (NHSS 17).

IVR ID Cards & Training ‘Passports’ are available on request

Driver CPC where applicable can be added to some IVR Modules, for a small additional cost.
