Open courses will be held at our Southampton training centre, or on your own premises, nationwide. We usually host open courses on Saturday's to minimise disruption to the working week. However, if this isn't convenient, or you would like a different subject to be presented on a given day, just let us know.
All trainees completing a Driver CPC course will be issued with a certificate showing the hours they are entitled to claim toward their required qualification.
We have designed our courses to be modular, allowing great flexibility in the subjects to be covered. Essentially, any two 3.5 hour courses can be combined into a single 7 hour course, though some courses such as emergency actions and first aid, or drivers' hours and use of digital tachographs do naturally compliment each other.
Our available courses are as follows:
|Course title||Course Duration|
|Drivers’ Hours of Work (Ref: CPC01)||3.5 hours|
|Use of Digital Tachographs (Ref: CPC02)||3.5 hours|
|Manual Handling for drivers (Ref: CPC03)||3.5 hours|
|Economic Driving (Ref:CPC04)||3.5 hours|
|Daily Walk-Round Safety Checks (Ref: CPC05)||3.5 hours|
|Vehicle and Load Security (Ref: CPC06)||3.5 hours|
|Dangerous Goods Awareness (Ref: CPC07)||7 hours|
|Actions in the event of Accidents and Emergencies (Ref: CPC08)||3.5 hours|
|General Health & Safety (Ref: CPC09)||3.5 hours|
|Basic First Aid for Drivers (Ref: CPC10)||3.5 hours|
|Safe Loading of Vehicles (Ref: CPC11)||3.5 hours|
|Professional Driving (speeding, hazard perception, fatigue, mobile phones, drink and drugs etc) (Ref: CPC12)||7 hours|
|The Prevention of Bridge Strikes (Ref: CPC13)||3.5 hours|
ADR Initial and Refresher courses
At least one each Initial and Refresher ADR driver training course eligible to count toward Driver CPC entitlement will be held per month.
Initial courses count as 21 hours, and Refresher courses count as 7 hours. We are pleased to offer these as part of an ADR course for £60 for the initial course (21hrs) and £25 for the refresher course (7hrs) - these rates are inclusive of the DSAs "upload" fees.
We would be pleased to discuss nationwide on-site training courses, customised courses and discounts for block bookings. On-site courses will be priced at the course fee (inclusive of all materials, and travel etc) plus the database uploading fees (obviously variable according to the number of trainees).
