Operators CPC / Managers CPC
Holding a Certificate of Professional Competence is an essential qualification required by law for anyone wishing to operate vehicles. Obtaining this qualification demonstrates the professional competence of the owner operator or transport manager responsible for the control of goods vehicles or of anyone applying for an Operator's Licence.
To gain the CPC qualification, candidates must sit formal examinations which are held four times a year (March, June, September and December) and successfully complete a case study as part of the examination process. Examinations are administered by OCR on behalf of the Department for Transport.
Wallace School of Transport delivers Transport Managers CPC training through our partner K Training, an accredited and approved OCR training and exam centre.
