A driver CPC (certificate of professional competence) as a certification is issued by none other than but the National transport department of UK. Considered as a top-notch certification, the same is targeted towards those people who want to get a strong foothold in the transport management and its related ancillary concerned with fleet operation.
Advantages galore of a CPC certification
Anyone desiring to go ahead and apply for a standard O license must either have a driver CPC certification or else should have access to an employee who has one. Issued by the VOSA, the standard O license in this case is mandatory for any company who operates commercial vehicles above 3.5 tonnes on the roads of UK.
Overall, if one was to do further scrutiny, the standard O certification in itself is quite broad and tends to cover not only a broad spectrum of operators but even hauliers, public bodies, local authorities, public bodies and lastly a number of fleet operators. Further, the course comprises of a list of total 5 units out of which one is just supposed to select only one subset. The list is related to:
Operations concerning road haulage
Passenger operations across UK
National transport option for passengers
Good hauliers and any other road haulage operations
Legal and any other business aspects
To further put it across any basic driver CPC course not only goes about covering domestic operations but a good deal of those contractors and individuals who are required to handle a major number of international operations. And once when having obtained that initial certificate; next would come in a stage where the candidate would be required to take part in a continuity training stretching over a number of years.
Criteria for CPC training providers
It is quintessential that all driver CPC training providers are approved by JAUPT (Joint Approval Board for Periodic Training). Failing to do so would only mean they wouldn’t qualify to further receive any certificates. Yet at the same time what’s rather more interesting is that CPC training being a legal requirement must be further recognised by the appropriate authorities having a range of experience in this field.
