Learn while you earn

Become a qualified Transport Manager, progress your career and reap the rewards. Enroll on the UK's only fully interactive online training course to gain a Level 3 Certificate of Professional Competence in Road Haulage Operations

  • Internationally recognised qualification

    This valuable internationally recognised qualification is essential for anyone entering the profession of Road Haulage 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.

  • The easiest, most efficient and cost-effective training option

    The online Transport Manager (road haulage) 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.

  • No prior training or qualifications are required

    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.

  • Study at your own pace and in your own time

    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.

  • 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 road haulage 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.

  • Increase your salary and achieve more

    A Transport Management position within the haulage and logistics 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).

You are one qualification away from a new career

A Transport Management position within the haulage and logistics 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 UK’s only fully interactive, online Transport Manager training program designed to prepare you to successfully pass the CPC examinations set by awarding bodies. All work is undertaken online and at your own pace. You can learn whilst you earn with no need to take time off work to study.

Gain an internationally recognised qualification

This valuable internationally recognised qualification is essential for anyone entering the profession of Road Haulage 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 road haulage 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.

Anybody can study to become a qualified Transport Manager

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.

100% of students who completed this course PASSED their multiple choice exam. 87% of students who completed this course PASSED their case studies exam. The national average pass rate is 57%.

WE DON'T BELIEVE IN BEING AVERAGE

Study online and you can learn in your own time, at your own pace wherever you are in the world

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 CPC course from NTP is the most cost-effective option available on the market today. 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.

I began this course at the end of last year, and have found it incredibly easy to work through. The course material focuses on the salient parts of the requirements for CPC, allowing you to grasp the concepts involved far quicker than many other courses I have looked at over the years. The benefit of online study is that you can work at your own pace, and recap what you need, when you need to. The additional support from NTP is also fantastic. If you submit an assessment, there is no waiting days for it to come back to you. The marking is fair and constructive, and aside from this, any other questions you may have are answered quickly and fully. Overall, fantastic value for money. If online study is your thing, then this course is most definitely for you.

I cannot recommend this course enough!! Use it at home, on a tablet, even on your phone while on the train. you can honestly learn anywhere if and when you get some time.There are Mock exams after each module in both R1 and R2 which give you a full understanding of whats expected on the day. The course suited me particularly well as I could never seem to find 10 consecutive days to have away from work to attend 'traditional' classroom training AND saved money in the process. I took, and passed both exams on the same day!! Print the revision notes provided at the end of each module, add your own to it if required as you are allowed to take this material into the R2 exam with you on the day.
