New Basic Operating Skills Test for Medium and High Level Order Pickers

The Accrediting Bodies Association for Workplace Transport (ABA) is pleased to release the Basic Operating Skills Test for Medium and High Level Order Pickers (E1 and E2)

The new test can be implemented from 1st December 2020, however, the mandatory use of these test will be need by training organisations from 1st April 2021. Any tests held on or after this date that do not use the new format will be invalid.

The ABA worked with a range of stakeholders, and gained valuable from the ABA summit last year, which included training organisations, trade associations, unions, lift truck manufacturers and the HSE, to produce a test which more closely reflects the modern working environment and the needs of employers and industry at large.

We would strongly encourage everyone to read the new test in detail to ensure they are aware of all of the changes.
