Road Haulage CPC

The Transport Manager's Qualification

The Certificate of Professional Competence in Road Haulage is a level 3 qualification that gives the learner the skill set to become a fully qualified transport manager. It teaches best practice in transport operations as well as giving the learner a detailed knowledge of the rules and regulations applicable to road haulage in the UK and Europe.

The course

The requirement for goods vehicle operators to show evidence of professional competence is contained in the Goods Vehicles Act 1995. Organisations operating goods vehicles over 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight require an Operator's Licence. In order to apply for an O-licence the licence holder must hold or have access to someone who holds a valid Certificate of Professional Competence in Road Haulage (CPC) qualification.


Benefits to the employer and the learner
