CPC Deadline fast approaching

CPC Deadline fast approaching

30 May 2014 Email this article

The CPC, or ‘Driver Certificate of Professional Competence’ is an initiative that hopes to help keep drivers, and the public, safe by making regular training a mandatory requirement for any professional driver who drives a vehicle over 3.5 tonnes.

All drivers, new and existing, must now undertake 35 hours of training every five years to ensure that their Driver CPC remains valid. This training must be delivered in blocks lasting a minimum of seven hours, and covers subjects such as road safety, fuel economy, health and safety and service.

And if you or your drivers haven’t completed CPC training yet, time is running out, as the deadline for completing the first 35 hours of training is the 10th September 2014.

Facelift offers a range of CPC courses, and, as a member of the INATIV consortium, and because we're fully authorised by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training, Facelift can offer its existing courses as part of a driver's CPC training. This means that drivers' IPAF, PASMA and Ladder training can contribute towards their CPC, thereby reducing the time spent in a classroom by those taking the course. Drivers can also choose to undertake the training as separate sessions.

This option to combine CPC training with other essential courses means that it’s easier for employees to get on with doing what they do best, the job in hand.
