 Accredited (PATS) Passenger Assistant Training

Tuesday 2 September 2014
9.30 -2.30 at the PEP Centre, West Pilton Park

Pilton Equalities Project (PEP) is registered with the Community Transport Association funded through the City of Edinburgh Council and recognised as the community transport operator for the North Edinburgh quadrant. We are a partner of the Edinburgh Community Transport Operators Group (ECTOG) PEP, Dove Transport, SEAG, LCTS, & Handicabs.

PATS means Passenger Assistants Training Scheme – PATS is a development of MiDAS and has a similar structure.

PATS has been developed for those people who undertake the role of passenger assistant, sometimes called escort. The PATS programme is relevant for passenger’s assistants working in cars, minicabs, taxis, minibuses, large buses and coaches.

PATS is open to any organisation that employs uses or supplies passenger assistants. An organisation does not have to be a member of the MiDAS training scheme in order to use the Passenger Assistant Training Scheme. It is also open to any organisation that uses volunteers as passenger assistants.

As places are limited, for further information on any of our courses call our trainer:
