Transport Manager CPC Road Haulage Refresher 1 day Course

Product Code: CPCREFRES1DY

For any transport manager, continuous professional development is now an important element of your career. Against the background of an ever-evolving transport legislation framework it is essential to stay current with the requirements of the law and best practice. The UK Traffic Commissioners also strongly endorse regular refresher training.

"A large number of operators appearing at public inquiry are still ignorant of exactly what is required of a transport manager."

(Richard Turfitt - Senior UK Traffic Commissioner)

Who should attend a Transport Manager CPC Refresher 1 day course?

It makes good sense to take a day to refresh your knowledge of transport legislation and to catch up on any changes since your last training, so you can fulfil your O Licence undertakings correctly. 

If it has been more than a couple of years since your last training, or you know that you have come to the attention of the Traffic Commissioner for any reason, we recommend that you take our 2 day course instead. You may have made an application to become a transport manager, or your organisation may be under investigation. In these instances, we strongly recommend that you attend a 2 day Transport Manager CPC Refresher course as soon as possible. 

If you don’t have a Transport Manager CPC qualification because you have a Restricted Operator Licence, you should attend an Operator Licence Awareness Training (OLAT) course every few years instead.

As your business may depend on your O Licence, it is vital to ensure that you comply with all your undertakings and maintain a healthy Operator Compliance Risk Score (OCRS).

Attendance of this course helps you to understand your obligations and equips you with the knowledge of how best to apply industry best practice to fulfil them. 

This course can count as 7 hours towards the 35 hours’ periodic Driver CPC training required to obtain or renew a Driver Qualification Card (DQC), also known as a Driver CPC card.
