LANTRA 12AB


Lantra is the leading provider of training and qualifications for land-based industries across the UK and Ireland. They are recognised by Highways England, Transport Northern Ireland, Transport Infrastructure Ireland, the Welsh Assembly and Transport Scotland. Lantra also work closely with the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) to provide their smartcard schemes, allowing candidates to have readily available access to their cards from any device that can access the internet.

Their training courses support the nationally recognised National Highway Sector Schemes (NHSS). These are quality management systems used by National Highways, who are responsible for 4% of the maintenance of the UK’s roads. The remaining percentage are the responsibility of local authorities, many of which do also accept and adopt the schemes. The schemes are produced as complimentary standards to ISO 9001 (2015) for those working on UK roads, providing a more thorough set of requirements and interpretations for the maintenance, construction and inspection of UK roads.

The course has a strong emphasis on health and safety, work competence and high standards of practice. LANTRA courses are largely supplemental and specific to the work that is required. Completion of LANTRA 12 TTMBC, focussed on Basic Principles, with a 3-month gap is required to commence LANTRA 12A/B learning. On the job learning is highly recommended during the 3-month gap. Those who already hold 12D modules at RTMO level or higher can also take this course.
