Abandoned Vehicles

All of our training courses are now delivered online via Teams. No fixed dates have been set as these will be determined when a practical number of attendees have indicated an interest.

Some courses have been split into three or four sessions which will be delivered over one to four days. Each session is from one to one and a half hours.

If there is a course you would like to attend, please get in touch with the name of the course and your preferred contact details and we can discuss requirements and costs. We will then let you know when the next sessions will be delivered.

The course carries a maximum value of 5 hours (core activity) for the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS) Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme.

This half-day course is suitable for enforcement officers within duty body organisations and provides an in-depth look at the legislation, prevention measures and effective methods of dealing with abandoned and nuisance vehicles, by exploring case studies and best practice.
