The NSW Taxi Council conducted the WATS (Wheelchair Accessible Taxi Services) – Train the Trainer programme on 22 and 23 September 2020 at the Kingsgrove RSL in Sydney. Nick Abrahim - Deputy CEO, NSW Taxi Council trained previously accredited and new WATS assessors from our member networks from Regional NSW towns - Milton Ulladulla, Dubbo, Tamworth, Nowra and Cootamundra.
The WAT Assessor Train the Trainer Program has been developed for Service Providers to meet the requirements of the Point to Point Transport Commission WAT Driver Competency Guidelines tool. The program helps previously accredited WAT Assessors undergo a refresher training to help with the Training and Assessing process through a consistent and up to date system.
The NSW Taxi Council has adopted a robust and thorough COVID-19 policy for any person undertaking this programme or any of our other Training Programs. In relation to the Train the Trainer WAT Assessor Program, it was ensured that COVID safe policies were adopted and social distancing measures were practiced throughout the training. Where social distancing may be difficult, we require for all attendees to wear face masks. This is in addition to keeping an attendance record for each person, sanitisation, and cleaning throughout the training, as well as regular cleaning of the training room.
