Emagister presents a complete online course that has been added to its educational catalog: HGV Transport Manager CPC. This course is taught by the Carlton & Jane Ltd T / A NTP Services Center.

Traffic Commissioners (the operator licensing authority) need that professional competence be tested by at least one member of the operator management team of most merchandise vehicles and passenger vehicles.

This applies to all companies that have a standard operator license. In general, those that operate vehicles of non-exempt goods with a gross weight of more than 3,500 kg (including the weight of any trailer) or vehicles that are not plated and that have an unloaded weight of more than 1,525 kg require a license and a professionally competent person.

The professionally fit person will often be employed as a transportation manager. One way to demonstrate this competence is by obtaining the relevant Professional Competency Certificate (CPC) from OCR.

This course has been developed to help students obtain the OCR Level 3 Certificate of Professional Competence for Transportation Managers (Road Haulage) (VRQ).

This course will provide you with all the information, support and resources you need to take the OCR exam with confidence. This course replaces the need to buy a home study package, since the entire course can be completed online.

If you want to know more about this course, please request more information at Emagister and our consultants will contact you to answer all your questions.

To take into account

This valuable internationally recognised qualification is essential for anyone entering the profession of Road Haulage Transport Management. It is also necessary for anyone who needs to demonstrate their professional competence to meet the Operator Licensing requirements. The CPC is a permanent award, does not expire or need to be renewed, although refresher courses are available. It is advisable to take a short refresher course every year.

The NTP Online Transport Manager CPC course is open to all. Unlike many other similar courses, you do not need any other qualifications to be eligible to enrol on the CPC course. There are no age limits or any other barriers to being accepted, although it is recommended that you possess competent English and Maths skills. Also, as the full course is computer based, a basic level of computer literacy is advantageous.
