A voluntary accreditation scheme for Driver CPC training providers is to be launched by Skills for Logistics (SfL) with the aim of improving driving standards in the road transport sector.
SfL said that while the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) is entrusted with ensuring Driver CPC regulations are adhered to by training providers, meeting these requirements does not necessarily mean courses provided are “excellent”.
As the Sector Skills Council for logistics, SfL plans to create a working database of all endorsed training providers as well as those who have had their endorsement revoked as a result of falling below the required standard. A key part of the proposals is a programme of unannounced audits to review the standard of training during the three to five-year period between assessments.
