Course programme

Traffic Commissioner Requirements Often the Traffic Commissioner requires CPC holders to prove "professional competence" The following course will satisfy that requirement. This three day course is aimed at transport professionals who already possess a CPC National Road Freight/Passenger Transport Operations and whose knowledge requires updating. The course is designed to provide updated information on recent legislative changes, including the latest drivers' hours regulations and operator obligations, refresh areas of the key CPC subjects which are vital to effective and compliant transport operations also raising awareness of current best practices. Who will Benefit ? Transport Managers, Transport Staff (Traffic Operators) and Supervisory Staff, Consultants and Senior Drivers. CPC National and International Refresher Courses The Goods Vehicles (Licensing of Operators) Act 1995 was designed to implement EC Directives 96/26EC and subordinate legislation with regard to the occupation of road haulage operations. The regulations state that an operator who seeks a standard National or International Licence MUST satisfy the Licensing Authority that he/she is either professionally competent or employs someone as a transport manager who is professionally competent and is of good repute. In this context, only an INDIVIDUAL PERSON can be professionally competent and to become this, the person must pass the CPC examinations set by the Oxford, Cambridge and Royal Society of Arts, Examinations Board (OCR). The examination for a National CPC consists of three modules (with a further module to cover International Operations). All three (or four if also taking the International exam) are set on the same day. A separate examination is required in order to obtain a passenger (bus and coach) operators licence. Courses for these are arranged according to demand. Updating from pre-October 1999 National to International certificates Candidates who achieved their National Certificate prior to October 1999 can no longer upgrade to an International Certificate by simply sitting Module 6 or 7 alone. This means that candidates who wish to obtain the International CPC from September 2004 must take the full national and international examinations. This decision was made a number of years ago, when the format of the qualification significantly changed to include case study papers. The decision to make this change was taken by the Transport Qualification Committee, made up, in part by representatives from industry and professional bodies including the Road Haulage Association and the Department of Transport.
