Passenger assistant training

Passenger Assistant Training Scheme (PATS) is for anyone who has care or supervision of passengers when travelling by road. PATS has been developed out of Midas and is for those people who undertake the role of passenger assistant, escorts, helpers or care assistants and is relevant for minicabs, minibuses and large buses. This can also apply to drivers who may have to provide assistance.

Minibus driver awareness scheme (MiDAS)

MiDAS training can be broken down into different training modules, dependant on your needs. This is a programme developed to enhance the driving and passenger awareness skills of the many thousands of individuals who drive minibuses in the course of their work or as volunteers. Whilst minibuses are a relatively safe form of passenger transport, everyone agrees that the task of minibus driving requires skills over and above those required for driving a car.

Midas is designed to make appropriate training, assessment and accreditation available to minibus drivers from voluntary organisations, local authorities, schools and colleges. We offer the following MiDAS modules:

  • Defensive Driving
  • Legal Responsibilities of Drivers
  • Health and Safety Awareness
  • Accident and Emergency Procedures
  • Personal Safety for Drivers
  • Child Passenger Safety

Our specialist MiDAS trainings include:

  • Accessible MiDAS. This programme covers the standard Midas training with the additional training for staff members who use wheelchairs within the minibuses or who carry less abled passengers.
  • MiDAS 5 Steps to Safety. The outcomes for this are: how to recognise common causes of fire; how to reduce the risk of vehicle fires starting; when and how to use a fire extinguisher; and how to safely evacuate a vehicle using the 5 steps to safety.

MiDAS MPV. This course is tailored specifically to enhance driving standard and provide car drivers with the information they need to deliver safe and comfortable transport for their passengers. It is also intended to assist the operators of smaller vehicles in meeting their health and safety obligations
