It is a legal requirement that all Goods / Passenger Vehicle Operators, or a member of their staff, must prove that they are ‘of good repute’ and professionally competent before an Operators Licence can be applied for.
To achieve this recognition, the operator, or a member of their staff, must successfully undertake the CPC Examinations and gain the Certificate of Professional Competence in Transport Management at the appropriate level (National/International)
The qualification includes a range of subjects related to the business of Road Haulage Transport Management. The areas specified in EU Directive 98/76/EC are assessed.
Please note we do not run courses in Passenger CPC, although we can arrange exams. We do run highly successful Freight CPC Courses.
The Oxford, Cambridge and RSA (OCR) Examination Board set and administer the examinations to assess the professional competence of those wishing to enter the Transport or Passenger Industry. These examinations are conducted four times a year, normally in the months of March, June, September and December.
The CPC Certificate assesses skills at Level 3 of the National Framework of Qualifications. The examinations are designed to be comparable in demand to other qualifications at Level 3, eg NVQ Level 3, Advanced GNVQ or A Level equivalent.
