AITT Appoints New General Manager

One of the UK’s foremost accrediting bodies for trainers of forklift trucks and related workplace transport operators and instructors – Association of Industrial Truck Trainers (AITT) – has announced the appointment of a new general manager.

Adam Smith, who has wide experience in workplace transport training, joins the AITT with the aim of increasing membership, providing even greater support for existing members and – as an accredited trainer himself – bringing new ideas based on a close understanding of the needs of instructors who deliver the training. In addition to this, Smith will contribute to the development of the of the Accrediting Bodies Association (ABA) Workplace Transport. 

AITT Chairman Mark Asplen said, “I believe we have the ideal candidate in Adam Smith. He brings a wealth of experience in the sphere of MHE training having worked at senior level for both an international manufacturer and a leading national training provider within this sector.

“We believe his drive and enthusiasm allied to his extensive understanding of training at a practical level will be invaluable in driving this organisation forward and in ensuring that we sustain our ever-expanding membership. He will develop and deliver standards that are recognised as the benchmark for our industry.”

Following his appointment Smith said, ”I am very excited to be taking on this role for AITT.  As a not-for-profit organisation run by a membership that embraces not only training companies but also forklift manufacturers and end-user companies, AITT has a unique perspective on all aspects of training. The input from our membership is what sets us apart and gives us a sharper focus on trainers’ requirements.”
