New courses add to Driver CPC choice
Both have been specifically developed with the needs of the road transport and logistics industry in mind.
Both of the new modules offer dual certification, which means that as well as counting towards the statutory 35 hours of Driver CPC training, if an exam is taken, the modules qualify the driver for an Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate (valid for three years) or a Manual Handling Certificate (valid for one year). This innovation adds additional value to the allotted training time.
As well as adding new modules, Driver Hire’s training team has also been reviewing, updating and improving its extensive range of industry specific Driver CPC courses, which include: Fuel Efficient Driving, Drivers’ Hours, Road Transport Working Time Regulations, Digital Tachograph and Health & Safety at Work.
Driver Hire Training’s Driver CPC network is possibly the UK’s most comprehensive. With over 100 accredited trainers it covers the whole of the country. Earlier this year it completed 100,000 Driver CPC driver training days. Business has continued apace since then, with over 2,500 drivers attending more than 330 courses since the start of the financial year. Courses at its central training facility in Bradford are fully booked through to September with new dates being added.
“All in all it’s proving to be a really exciting summer for Driver CPC training,” says Richard Armitage, director of Driver Hire Training. “Offices around the network are also reporting strong demand. We’re attracting new business from national companies and, doubly pleasing, there are plenty of existing customers re-booking for the next round of training. A recent JAUPT audit gave Driver Hire Training a massive thumbs up, confirming the quality and high standards of our Driver CPC training offer.”
