‘Periodic Training’ is the term used to describe the process where all drivers have to complete 35 hours of training every five years, to ensure their Driver CPC certification remains valid and current.
You must retrain every five years, but you have some flexibility around how you undertake the 35 hours of training across the five year period. The only criteria is that it must happen in blocks of at least seven hours at one time – so in practice this is five one-day training sessions.
So how you train is up to you – you could do one day a year for five years, or leave all five days until your fifth year. You can decide what works best for your budget and timescales.
Driver CPC periodic training courses, like the ones on offer from Driveline, are all one-day courses that are well thought out to develop safe and competent drivers. Whether you want to spread your training over five years, or need to undertake bulk training in a hurry, we have a range of courses and dates to suit your needs.
If you’re a company looking after a number of drivers, why not phase the training of your staff over the five years? Don’t leave it all until the last minute! Contact Driveline today and we can help you draw up and manage your CPC training schedule.
