Often the Traffic Commissioners frequently requires CPC holders and transport managers update their knowledge. The following course will assist in satisfying that requirement.
“A large number of operators appearing at public inquiry are still ignorant of exactly what is required of a transport manager”
(Richard Turfitt – Traffic Commissioner, Eastern Traffic Area Jan 2011)
This one or two day course is aimed at transport professionals who already possess a CPC National Road Freight/Passenger Transport Operations and whose knowledge requires updating.
The course is designed to provide updated information on recent legislative changes, including the latest drivers’ hours regulations and operator obligations, refresh areas of the key CPC subjects which are vital to effective and compliant transport operations also raising awareness of current best practices.
The Goods Vehicles (Licensing of Operators) Act 1995 was designed to implement EC Directives 96/26EC and subordinate legislation with regard to the occupation of road haulage and passenger operations.
The regulations state that an operator who seeks a standard National or International Licence MUST satisfy the Licensing Authority that he/she is either professionally competent or employs someone as a transport manager who is professionally competent and is of good repute.
In this context, only an INDIVIDUAL PERSON can be professionally competent and to become this, the person must pass the CPC examinations set by the Oxford, Cambridge and Royal Society of Arts, Examinations Board (OCR). The examination for a National CPC consists of three modules (with a further module to cover International Operations). All three (or four if also taking the International exam) are set on the same day.
This course has been designed to raise awareness of the Transport Managers’ responsibilities with regard to the demanding requirements of road transport legislation and to help protect your operator’s licence and maintain a healthy Operator Compliance Risk Score.
