Transport Manager CPC Road Haulage Refresher 2 day Course

Product Code: CPCREFRES2DY

UK Traffic Commissioners are very keen to see transport managers take part in continuous professional development, which means making time for regular refresher training.

Richard Turfitt, Senior UK Traffic Commissioner, said, "A large number of operators appearing at public inquiry are still ignorant of exactly what is required of a transport manager."

The UK Traffic Commissioners recommend that all transport managers attend a Transport Manager CPC Refresher course every few years, at an approved examination centre for the Transport Manager CPC qualification. Novadata is a Skills and Education Group Awards (SEG Awards) accredited examination centre. 

Who should attend a Transport Manager CPC Refresher course?

If you are in any form of communication with the UK Traffic Commissioners, you should opt for a two-day course. You may, perhaps, have applied to be a transport manager for a specific organisation, have recently changed roles within the organisation, or have been requested by the Traffic Commissioner to undergo refresher training. A two-day course, which allows us to examine best practice in more depth, is usually what the Traffic Commissioner will suggest is most appropriate.

If it is some years since you gained your Transport Manager CPC, or since you last attended refresher training, you may have a lot of ground to make up. A two-day course is the best option as it will allow you to catch up with best practice after a longer break since you last attended any form of continuous professional development. 

If your organisation is under investigation by the authorities, or facing the prospect of a Public Inquiry, you should certainly attend a Transport Manager CPC Refresher course as soon as possible. If you hold a Restricted Operator Licence, you should attend an Operator Licence Awareness Training (OLAT) course as a matter of urgency.
