Emergency Response Driving Instructor Training

Emergency Response Driver Training Ltd is a RoSPA accredited training body and all ERDT Courses are accredited by RoSPA.

The Emergency Response Driving Instruction training is accredited by RoSPA and has the same course content as the National Diploma in Emergency Response Driving Instruction accredited by RoSPA however there are some courses that cannot be assessed by a RoSPA examiner or it may not be cost effective to be assessed by RoSPA due to the location.

The courses are designed to provide the knowledge and skills required to deliver and assess emergency response driving.

We have the experience and skills to deliver Instructor training on all vehicles categories used by the Emergency Service.

Please note: Instructor training is only available to statutory Emergency Services who wish to deliver training to their staff and not on a commercial basis.
