FTA launches "community" initiative to CPC training
Dubbed Driver CPC Community, the new programme is intended to effectively remove much of the disruption caused from sending drivers to distant training venues, improving peace of mind and value for money along the way.
Under the scheme, selected FTA members will host Driver CPC modules at their own premises, delivered by the FTA training team. These courses will be attended by their own drivers with any additional spaces offered to companies most appropriate for that location.
Companies looking to benefit from the availability of training venues courtesy of nearby "hosts" simply complete a form setting out their preferred dates and the maximum time they will permit for their drivers to travel to a course – FTA does the rest.
Nic Allen’s, FTA’s general manager for training, said: 'Driver CPC Community will not only make meeting one’s training commitments infinitely more practical but it will minimise the disruption caused from having to send drivers halfway across the country for the right course. With this hassle-free solution, FTA is proving that Driver CPC commitments don’t have to mean sleepless nights.'
The FTA says that the "community" process will be crucial in bringing greater flexibility in terms of delegate attendance numbers per course.
Allen concluded: 'We already know that meeting mandatory training commitments is a source of major anxiety for many companies – Driver CPC Community is all about providing logistics operators with peace of mind, a quality service and a substantial saving in time and money.
'Driver CPC Community is a fully flexible product that will reach all of our customers wherever they are based and is another example of innovation from a decidedly ‘can do’ and customer-focused sector.'
