How to Gain the Transport Manager CPC Quickly, Easily and in the Most Cost-effective Way Possible

PCV online transport manager CPC study course leading to a level 3 Certificate of Professional Competence in Passenger Transport operations

A Transport Management position within the PCV & PSV industry can typically attract a salary of between £32,000 and £42,000 per annum. A self-employed freelance Transport Manager can earn considerably more with many commanding a salary of over £100,000 per year. However, to be eligible to apply for a lucrative transport management position you must possess the Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC). This is a highly valued, internationally recognised qualification that ensures you or the company you work for, are fully compliant in meeting the requirement of the Goods Vehicles (Licensing of Operators) Act 1995 and EU Regulation 1071/2009/EC. A major problem now facing the transport industry is that there are just not enough CPC qualified transport managers available, to fill the ever-increasing number of job vacancies. It’s a dilemma for the industry that is destined to drive salaries even higher.

How to get qualified and reap the rewards…

NTP Services are JAUPT approved industry experts and a leading provider of online training solutions. We offer the only online Transport Manager In passenger transport CPC training programme designed to prepare you to successfully pass the CPC examinations set by the awarding bodies. All work is undertaken online and at your own pace.

Internationally recognised qualification

This valuable internationally recognised qualification is essential for anyone entering the profession of Passenger Transport Management. It is also necessary for anyone who needs to demonstrate their professional competence to meet the Operator Licensing requirements. The CPC is a permanent award, does not expire or need to be renewed, although refresher courses are available. It is advisable to take a short refresher course every year

Major benefits to individuals considering career progression

Individuals who successfully complete the online course and pass the examinations, will be able to progress their career into management or legally operate their own passenger transport operation. You are also able to command substantial fees should you decide to become a self-employed freelance Transport Manager. You will also be free to choose which companies you work for and when. Every transport company in the UK and Europe must employ a qualified Transport Manager, if operating on a standard licence, in order to fully comply with legislation. Failure to do so can result in significant fines for the transport company and the loss of their operator’s licence.

Who is eligible to apply?

The NTP Online Transport Manager CPC course is open to all. Unlike many other similar courses, you do not need any other qualifications to be eligible to enrol on the CPC course. There are no age limits or any other barriers to being accepted, although it is recommended that you possess competent English and Maths skills. Also, as the full course is computer based, a basic level of computer literacy is advantageous.

Why choose the online transport manager CPC course?

Studying online allows you to study at your own pace and in your own time. This is particularly useful in allowing the course work to be fitted in and around your work and family commitments. Online study means not having to take time off work to attend day classes or the inconvenience of attending evening classes. A home study (paper based) course, which is sometimes cheaper, offers no support and very often leads to students abandoning the course. NTP Online Learning have fully qualified experts on hand to help and guide you through the CPC course ensuring you stand a much higher than average chance of passing the examinations first time.

The easiest and most efficient, cost-effective option

The online Transport Manager (passenger transport) CPC course from NTP is the most cost-effective option available. You simply log-on to your course work at any time 24/7, from any location, and work to complete each module at your own pace. If at any time you need help, you can simply call our dedicated helpline number for assistance. A full support service has proved invaluable to the many students who have already successfully completed the course. This has led to a much lower drop-out rate and higher retention than many other similar courses. It has also facilitated completing the course and passing the examinations in much less time, than if you were attending day or evening classes or working to complete a home study course. The cost of the course training is an investment in your future, ensuring a virtually guaranteed income for all your working life. Course payments can be conveniently spread over several installments. Simply select an installment plan that suits your budget.
