1985 - Present
Our History

AITT have been working on improving standards of the material handling industry since 1985.

1985

AITT (originally called the Association of Industry Truck Trainers) was formed by training providers and manufacturers, to discuss training standards of workplace transport in the UK. AITT’s mission was to set out, revise, and maintain a set of alternative standards to RTITB.

ITSSAR was also formed, to provide the monitoring, registration and certification for AITT.

1991

The HSE (Formally known as the HSC) recognised AITT/ITSSAR as an accrediting body for workplace transport.

2005

AITT and ITSSAR split, and as a result each organisation became their own accrediting body, to maintain and develop standards.

2008

The HSC became the HSE and stopped administering accrediting bodies.

2012

At the request of the HSE, the ABA (Accrediting Bodies Association) was formed, comprising of the 4 leading accrediting bodies: AITT, ITSSAR, RTITB, and NPORS. Their goal was to set a common level of standards across all awarding bodies.

2014

As part of the membership requirements of the ABA, all operator training delivered by AITT training providers must ensure an extra level of auditing is completed by the awarding body. Therefore, AITT introduced its registration scheme (now called ACORNS - AITT Certificate of Operator Registration Number Scheme).

This gave the customer the ability to check an individual training record by contacting AITT with their own unique reference number.

2017

To support the growth of AITT and to plan for the future, AITT moved to a larger premises with conferencing facilities, confirming its commitment to the industry.

2019

AITT’s Managing Director was nominated to become chairman of the ABA, to help move the association forward and complete the set of standards being established across all workplace transport
