Welcome to the RTITB Academy, the first choice for all of your transport, distribution and logistics

The RTITB Instructor Academy is completely focused on delivering workplace transport 'train-the-trainer and assessor courses, making us uniquely qualified to train Lift Truck Instructors, LGV Instructors, Driver CPC Instructors and everything in between.

Operating as usual


Just a reminder that this coming Monday, 28th August, is a bank holiday in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The RTITB Instructor Academy will be closed on this day. Our team will be back to assist you from 8.30am on Tuesday 29th August as normal. We hope everyone enjoys the long weekend.



Being an Instructor is incredibly rewarding but can also be hard work. Sometimes, you’re on to the next course before you can consider what a great job you’ve done. It’s easy to forget to acknowledge your own success when you’re busy celebrating the success of your learners. However, research shows that positive self-talk can improve self-esteem, stress management, and wellbeing. So, take a moment to give yourself a pat on the back, and tell yourself some of the great things you’ve achieved – you deserve some recognition.



Our Instructors are experts in training the trainer and have been handpicked from across the UK. They have years of real-world industry experience, and they love to share it - as this LGV Assessor training candidate recently found out. Well done Jon on another great course.

No, it’s not a bad joke – just a genuine question we get asked a lot. So, what is the difference between a Banskman and a Reversing Assistant? Usually, nothing! In our industry they are terms that are used interchangeably for someone that helps direct vehicle movements during reversing on a work site. Whatever you call them, they must receive the proper training to support safety. Train a Banksman Instructor to give your team the skills they need for safe reversing operations.

Don’t get hot and bothered in your environment. It’s , so be prepared for warmer temperatures and take action to keep your training centre or classroom cool.

So, keep spaces well ventilated and cool, and dress accordingly for the weather (and the fact you may need to wear PPE on top).
