Transport Manager CPC Road Haulage
Price: £1,471.50 (includes VAT & examination fees)*
If you intend to pursue a career in road haulage management, you will need to gain The Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) for Transport Managers. This is the qualification required to hold a Standard Operator Licence for a road haulage business. This is a level 3, Department for Transport recognised qualification which covers both National and International transport operations.
Also known as Management CPC, the Transport Manager Certificate of Professional Competence (Road Haulage) is divided into two assessments; firstly, a multiple-choice paper and; secondly, a case study-based written paper. You must pass both parts in order to qualify, although this does not necessarily have to be at the same time. This is a fairly tough challenge, but our friendly, experienced trainers can help you to acquire the knowledge that you will need to sit your exams with confidence.
You must sit your examinations at an accredited examination centre. The good news is that we are an accredited centre, so, once you have completed your studies, you can sit your exams in the familiar surroundings of our training centre.
Benefits of gaining a Transport Manager CPC qualification:
- The Transport Manager CPC qualification is recognised throughout the transport industry and helps to open up a career in road haulage.
- Holding a Transport Manager CPC qualification demonstrates that you are suitably qualified to be act as the nominated transport manager when an organisation is applying for a Standard National or International Operator Licence.
- Our course equips each candidate with the knowledge required to sit their exams, but also to establish robust and efficient processes which will help you to set up or run an effective professional road haulage operation.
- If you also drive professionally, the Transport Manager CPC course can count as 35 hours towards your Driver CPC, allowing you to obtain your Driver Qualification Card (DQC). This will incur an additional fee*, but it will save you attending Driver CPC periodic training in addition to your Manager CPC course. Please ask us about this when you book your course.
