The Importance of Regular Transport Manager Refresher Training

The Importance of Regular Transport Managers Refresher Training

As a qualified Transport Manager, it is essential that you stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the industry. The transport industry is constantly evolving, and new regulations and best practices are being introduced all the time. That is why regular refresher training is crucial to ensure that your operations are safe, efficient, and compliant.

At NTP Online Learning (NTP), we understand the importance of regular refresher training for Transport Managers. Our online learning courses are specifically designed to help you refresh your knowledge and skills. These courses cover a wide range of topics, including health and safety, driver compliance, and vehicle maintenance, among others.

While the law only requires Transport Managers to undergo refresher training every five years, we recommend that you refresh your knowledge every 2-3 years. This is because the transport industry is constantly changing, and it is important to stay up-to-date with the latest developments to ensure that your operations are safe, efficient, and compliant.

It is important to note that if you do not complete an x1 day refresher within the 5 years, the Traffic Commissioner can order you to complete a 2-day Transport Manager Refresher course which is tutor-led, and you will need to log in at a specific time for two consecutive days. This course is more expensive and is generally ordered to be completed by the Traffic Commissioner, for example, if you have not completed a 1-day refresher within the last five years or if your company has been involved in an incident where your ability as a Transport Manager has been questioned.

At NTP, we offer bespoke x2-day refreshers on a 1-2-1 basis with a tutor. This course can be tailored to your company’s needs and the issues you are currently facing. This approach also allows for a level of privacy so that you can discuss your company’s details in confidence.

The benefits of regular refresher training are numerous. Firstly, it helps to ensure that your knowledge and skills are up-to-date, which can help you to make better decisions and improve the overall efficiency of your operations. Secondly, it can help to reduce the risk of accidents and incidents, which can have serious consequences for your business. Finally, it can help to demonstrate to regulators and/or your employer that you are committed to maintaining high standards of safety and compliance.

In conclusion, as a qualified Transport Manager who passed over two years ago, it is essential that you undergo regular refresher training to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the industry. NTP offers a range of online courses that are specifically designed to help you refresh your knowledge and skills. Don’t wait until it’s too late, sign up today and take the first step towards improving your operations and maintaining high standards of safety and compliance.
