Logistics UK expands transport manager CPC qualification capacity


Following OCR’s withdrawal from the Transport Manager CPC market, Logistics UK – in association with City & Guilds – has expanded capacity for its market leading Transport Manager CPC qualification.

This will enable applicants and holders of standard goods vehicle operator licenses, together with their transport managers, to continue to meet ‘professional competence’ requirements. Offering a clear, relevant, and practical syllabus – supported by strong exam preparation methods – Logistics UK’s Transport Manager CPC Training is available as classroom-based, online or blended learning.

Chris Lipscomb, Logistics UK’s Director of Operations, comments: “Despite the upcoming changes in exam provision, it is essential that operators and their transport managers achieve, and continue to demonstrate, professional competence. Logistics UK is one of the biggest business groups in the UK with unparalleled compliance knowledge, quality and reputation. We are proud to be working with City & Guilds to expand our capacity and ensure we meet the increased demand that will follow OCR’s final CPC examination registration in March. We anticipate high numbers of bookings and recommend enrolling now to avoid disappointment.

“Our e-learning course is available to all classroom delegates prior to the exam. And with a ‘pass first time or we pay for your resit’ guarantee, we are confident that our market leading course will provide delegates with all of the information needed to acquire the qualification and excel in their transport management roles.”

Suki Thorogood, Head of Industries, Assessment and Development (IAD) at City & Guilds, comments: “We are delighted to partner with Logistics UK to offer the Transport Manager CPC qualification. The industry offers structured and sustainable employment opportunities and represents a key sector within the UK economy. This qualification ensures that high professional standards are maintained and by offering the chance for it to be undertaken remotely, in person, or via a blended approach, we can ensure that these opportunities are available to the widest selection of learners.”
