‘At last practical training with our own low-loader’

“We were looking for a practical training course for our own low-loader, preferable run by people who know the equipment. We soon ended up at the Nooteboom Academy. We sat down with one of their technicians and instructors and together we drew up a ‘Zweverink programme’. Tailor-made, specifically aimed at our requirements and in accordance with the Code 95 rules. Ten people from our company attended the course, so not just our drivers. This was a conscious decision. Ten people know more than one. Also, more people with extra knowledge will help to get the most out of our low-loader and prevent unnecessary damage and costs. To work with our own low-loader felt great, we did not have to spend time travelling and we enjoyed practising in our own familiar surroundings.”
