Description

Course Description

The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is required by all bus and truck drivers. You must complete 35 hours of periodic training every five years to keep your qualification valid.

 

You can check how much training you have to complete by registering online for access to your account - click here. 

 

If your CPC card is due to expire or if you are thinking of returning to the industry, this course will provide you with the training necessary to attain your updated qualification.

What You Can Expect

The course will be held at our facilities in Rutherglen, Glasgow. Our premises are located a short distance from the Polmadie junction on the M74. 

 

Registration is open from 8:30am with your course scheduled to start at 9:00am. There will be two 15-minute breaks in the morning and afternoon, and a 30 minute lunch interval. Lunch and refreshments will be provided and are included in the price.

 

By attending this course, you will receive 7 hours towards your Driver CPC. 

 

Our courses are interactive and are composed of presentations, exercises and video clips. There are short question papers at the end of each module to confirm knowledge transfer - these are not exams and your hours will be uploaded irrespective of your score.
