The Passenger Assistant Training Scheme (PATS) is applicable to anyone performing the role of a passenger assistant on a vehicle.
Passenger Assistant Training Scheme (PATS) is a nationally recognised standard of training for people whose role it is to provide care and assistance to passengers travelling by road.
If you are paid staff, a volunteer or you are performing the dual role of driver/carer then you will benefit from PATS Training.
PATS has five modules:
- Module B1: Passenger awareness and assistance – This module covers awareness of passenger needs and how to assist, looking at individuals who don’t use a wheelchair.
- Module B2: Assisting passengers who travel in wheelchairs – B2 covers similar aspects to B1 but focuses specifically on passengers in wheelchairs.
The other modules you can also complete will depend on the needs of the people you work with. You can choose from the following list:
- Module A: This is the foundation module for all passenger assistants. This module helps you understand your role as a passenger assistant.
- Module C1: Supervising children and young people with special needs – For PA’s who work with children or young people with special needs.
- Module C2: Working with adults who need care and supervision – PA’s who work with vulnerable adults.
At the end of the course and upon passing the assessment you will receive a certificate which will be valid for 4 years.
This training scheme is available to all individuals.
