CPC Road Haulage Success

Friday 02 February 2018

Another day, another certificate. Well done to Dafyn for passing his level 3 in 'CPC in Road Haulage'

Last December Dafyn went on the extensive CPC for Road Haulage accreditation at DLT Training Bridgend. The course lasted 9 days, spread over 2 weeks, with 2 exams at the end of the course.

The qualification is offered on behalf of the Department for Transport and in relation to the current EU Directive. It is suitable for those wishing to enter the profession of Road Haulage Transport Management or demonstrate professional competence to meet the Operator Licensing requirements.

"I heard the course was difficult from colleagues and friends, I brushed off the comments but soon realised they were right. The course was quite difficult, with an average pass rate of forty percent"

"I'm extremely happy with passing the course on the first go, and excited to put the knowledge to the test. I'd like to say thank you to Recycle Direct, for allowing me to gain another qualification and also DLT Training for the in-depth knowledge and tuition." - Dafyn Upham, Marketing Coordinator.
