Birch-based transport and logistics training provider Veterans Training Academy has joined the UK’s largest CPC Consortium, to provide the highest standard periodic training to professional goods drivers and passenger-carrying vehicle drivers.
As a member of the Road Transport Industry Training Board (RTITB) Master Driver CPC Consortium, Veterans Training Academy will help to protect the safety of all who travel on the road, through the delivery of comprehensive, innovative and engaging Driver Certificate of Professional Competence Periodic Training, developed by RTITB.
Jon Pike, of Veterans Training Academy, which is dedicated to the ex-military community, said: "Being part of the RTITB Master Driver CPC Consortium has really benefitted us.
"It has given us opportunities to grow our business and enabled us to secure new customers who require Periodic Driver CPC training."
Since 2008, professional heavy goods vehicle and passenger carrying vehicle drivers have been required to undertake regular professional development training as part of a series of measures introduced across Europe to improve safety on all member states’ roads.
Laura Nelson, Managing Director of RTITB said: “It is the dedication and commitment shown by Veterans Training Academy Ltd and our other consortium members that help drive safety and awareness on our roads. We’re delighted to welcome them as a member to the consortium.”
