Most of us are not aware of the fact that there is CPC training for heavy vehicle drivers to take. Many times, it has so happened, that we have actually gasped when we see a very huge vehicle or lorry being driven on the highway, and have pondered how is this driver able to manage and drive such a big vehicle so efficiently. Well, this is the magic of CPC Training.
The FPS (Federation of Petroleum Suppliers) has seen an increase in CPC training demand by the oil distributors. CPC training scheme is specifically designed for FPS drivers, as it gives special knowledge of tankers to the course participants. FPS themselves provide CPC training and has had good number of trainees since its inception in 2009, and are still seeing a dramatic increase in the number of drivers who want to undergo CPC training.
To pass the training, it is mandatory for the drivers to take 35 hours of training every five years. For bus, coach and lorry drivers, it is compulsory to take the training. Bus and coach drivers have the deadline as 10 September 2013, while the lorry drivers have time up until 10 September 2014.
The best way to have a safe journey is to drive on good and safe roads, but more important is that the drivers should go through CPC training, which gives them good knowledge about driving and what precautions to take in order to avoid any kind of mishaps or accidents whilst in transit. It is inspiring to see that all the drivers of huge vehicles are taking up this course.
