The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has launched e-DCPC, an online version of Driver CPC (DCPC) training. It says the courses will ensure that PSV drivers can continue to undertake such training during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
e-DCPC is approved by JAUPT as a suitable online delivery alternative to classroom-based DCPC training.
Says Keith Gray, FTA General Manager of Training, Audits and Standards: “While FTA has temporarily suspended all face-to-face training events under coronavirus COVID-19 government guidance, we are committed to ensuring that workers can continue to receive the vital training they require to keep operations safe, efficient and compliant.
“By launching e-DCPC, we can help to ensure that businesses remain as operational as possible throughout the pandemic.
“With the government permitting individuals to undertake training while on furlough, businesses could use that time to upskill their workforces, enrolling their drivers on the e-DCPC course to keep them up to date with mandatory training requirements.”
