Military Transition Scheme

Free training for military leavers looking to enter the civilian lifting industry

The Military Transition Scheme is designed to support the transition into the civilian lifting equipment industry for veterans and reservists within 2 years of leaving military service.

The lifting equipment industry, like many others, is facing the challenge of resourcing a sustainable and skilled workforce. LEEA recognise that ex-military personnel with transferable skills can potentially provide an important additional resource to our industry and therefore we are offering a package of benefits to military veterans and reservists in support of this initiative:

  • LEEA Foundation Certificate e-Learning course
  • At Military Training Scheme rates
  • LEEA will provide direct links to its members who are recruiting
  • Possible employment with one of our global members

For further information, please email us at To apply for the scheme, please complete our online application form here and once submitted, a member of the LEEA team will contact you.

LEEA Members and Industry Partners

Would you like to link up with a military veteran or reservist looking to join the lifting industry?

We want to demonstrate to our military veterans and reservists just how wide and rewarding a career in the lifting equipment industry can be, but we’re asking for your help.

We’re reaching out to our Members and industry partners to find companies who would be able to offer employment to veterans and reservists. We have already seen success; several of our military veterans and reservists have already secured employment with LEEA members through the Military Transition Scheme.

Veterans and reservists could be a perfect fit for your business if you’re looking for highly professional, self-motivated individuals who can use their initiative and possess a wide range of transferrable skills in areas such as:

  • Engineering
  • Leadership and management
  • Communications
  • Organisation
  • Problem solving
  • Teamwork
