National CPC Training


What is the CPC and who is it for?

Applicants for a Goods Vehicle Operator’s Licence must show that they are ‘professionally competent’ or that they employ a transport manager who meets the requirements. Persons will be considered ‘professionally competent’ by passing the examination for the Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) conducted by OCR Examinations on behalf of the Department for Transport (DfT).
The CPC is the Certificate of Professional Competence in Road Haulage. These qualifications are offered by OCR on behalf of the Department for Transport and include a range of subjects related to the business of road haulage
transport management.

The qualifications are for individuals who want to:

• Enter the profession of Transport Manager, or
• Demonstrate their professional competence to meet
Operator Licensing requirements – holding a CPC is one of the elements an applicant must satisfy for the Transport
Commissioner to grant an ‘O’ license

You will benefit from this course if you intend to apply for a Standard Operator’s Licence, or seek to enhance your professional competence and skills within the industry.
