Who should take NTP’s online Transport Manager Course and why?
The Traffic Commissioners (the issuing authority for operator licences) require professional competence to be proven by at least one member of the management team of operators of most goods vehicles and passenger carrying vehicles.
This applies to all businesses which hold a standard operator’s licence. Generally, those who operate non-exempt goods vehicles with a gross plated weight of more than 3,500 kg (including the weight of any trailer) or vehicles which are not plated and which have an unladen weight of more than 1,525 kg require both such a licence and a professionally competent person.
The professionally competent person will often be employed as the transport manager and one way of demonstrating this competence is by achieving the relevant OCR Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC). It is a legal requirement that operators who are not exempt and hold a standard national or standard international operator licence have a professionally competent qualified person within their management team.
However, this does not mean that restricted operators shouldn’t have a competent person within their organisations as they are still required to adhere to the undertakings of the operator licence. Every business that has a transport operation should have a competent person to ensure compliance and the smooth operation of the business.
This course isn’t just designed for current operators either; it’s an excellent qualification for those looking to enter the industry, those wanting to start their own transport business or those looking for career progression. This Level 3 qualification is recognised across Europe and it will show employers you are serious about your career. It will also show that you have the knowledge to undertake a more senior role have a full understanding, along with ability, to operate a transport business. It is an excellent stepping stone for development and progression in logistics.
