TTC Group goes online for driver training
TTC Group is delivering its Driver CPC courses and core fleet manager courses online in virtual classrooms, enabling fleets to continue vital work to maintain vehicle compliance.
The group has obtained formal approval from JAUPT – the organisation for quality assurance programme of centres and courses for the Driver CPC periodic training – to deliver all its half-day courses and its Driver Personal Performance course online from Wednesday 15 April.
The 3.5-hour courses are offered on a variety of subjects, including drivers hours, distractions and safe loading. As per the existing JAUPT guidelines, seven hours of training will be required during a 24-hour period, meaning each driver will need to complete two different 3½ courses within that period.
All courses will be delivered ‘live’ with expert trainers delivering the courses for up to 12 delegates at a time within a virtual classroom. The classroom allows each delegate to see, interact with and ask questions of the trainer, and other delegates, as well as viewing and hearing the same content delivered on traditional face-to-face courses.
TTC is also now able to deliver a number of its fleet and driver risk management courses online, covering line manager training and driver safety awareness.
TTC Group CEO Jim Kirkwood commented: “The business environment has changed out of all recognition and we needed to react quickly. That’s why I’m delighted we can now offer our training using virtual classroom technology.
“We’ve had to pull together a dedicated team to make our dream a reality, as well as liaising closely with JAUPT to get their formal approval to move online in record time. Clearly, necessity is the mother of invention, but you need a great team to deliver it quickly, and at TTC, we are fortunate to have one, ” he added.
