This 10 day course is delivered virtually to maximise training time. The qualification is recognised by the Department of Transport and is for those who need to be named on the Operator Licence as the competent person within road haulage.

The course is run over a period of 4 weeks as small blocks of time allow delegates to fully understand the subjects with time for question practise. Full training notes are provided for the course.

In order to successfully qualify as a Transport Manager both exams must be passed. Either exam can be resat if needed at later exam sittings with additional exam fees required.

This one day course is designed for those who work in the Road Haulage sector and are required to have a greater understanding of the importance of the Operator Licence.
