At the beginning of 2022, CTA began working in partnership with Hampshire County Council (The original developers of MiDAS) and Motability (a national charity with the purpose of enhancing the lives of disabled people with transportation solutions and charitable grant programmes) to transform the MiDAS offering. We are working with a team of training design experts to ensure MiDAS offers up-to-date, flexible, responsive, and passenger-focused training, retaining all the strengths of the existing training programme while ensuring it is fit for the future by using the most up to date tools and technology.
MiDAS Minibus training will be relaunching in January 2024. In the meantime, anyone requiring training should train as normal – all valid certificates will be unaffected by any future changes and Purple Round 3 will be extended to 31st December 2023. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will happily answer them.
