The Freight Transport Association (FTA) will work with you to help identify the most practical, efficient and cost-effective way to manage your Driver CPC programme.

We have a range of options available, from public courses, in-company training and Consortium membership.

With FTA Vision, customers can now see their drivers’ training records in the same portal as their tachograph infringements and audit reports bringing together all this information in one easy-to-read area.

What’s more, training courses delivered by FTA will automatically populate the learning records into Vision so that you can track what is being taught.   

The Driver CPC tracker shows progress against the uploaded expiry date of the Driver Qualification Card (DQC).

The benefits of the FTA’s Driver CPC training course include:

  • 24-7 COURSE DELIVERY - to suit the needs of your business.
  • COMPETITIVE RATES - offering excellent value for money, a professional and approachable team of trainers who offer a wealth of knowledge and experience.
