Transport Manager CPC – Road Haulage - back to back

Liverpool, Leamington Spa + 7 more



Demonstrating ‘professional competence’ is a fundamental requirement of the operator licensing system, for both Standard National and Standard International licences. Given that the CPC qualification is a ‘licence to practice’, our aim is to continually strive to improve the pass rate for the benefit of our members and their staff. 


What makes FTA different?

  • Pass first time with FTA or we pay for the resit exam

Our aim is a 100% pass rate. However, should this not happen, we’ll pay for another exam attempt. We’ll ensure that your candidates receive the very best preparation and therefore chance of passing the CPC. This satisfaction guarantee underpins our commitment to our CPC candidates.

  • New for 2020 – Fully ‘Blended’ Course, providing online and classroom learning and support

All candidates enrolled on this course will be given access to a comprehensive suite of e-learning modules which supplement a candidates learning and assist with exam preparation. Online support will be available to candidates for the duration of the course. Access will be made available to candidates 4 weeks prior to the course, up until the date of the exam.

  • Modern and timely testing

E-testing is available on all CPC courses, including in-company courses. Taking the multiple choice examination on the final day of the course has increased the pass rate for this exam by 18%. This is due to the retention and recency of candidate knowledge. E-test resits can be rescheduled sooner than the paper exam. We include a free preparation session with one of our trainers on the morning of the resit exam (e-tests only).

  • Case study revision courses

These optional sessions benefit candidates by focusing specifically on the written exam. The workshop sessions use sample case study questions, coupled with exam techniques and guidance provided by the CPC tutor. The 2-day courses are scheduled in the week of the exam.

  • Excellent pass rates

Better pass rates benefit employers by reducing an employee’s time out of the business to resit examinations. The City & Guilds CPC exam, taken through FTA, regularly exceeds the OCR national pass rate.

  • Twenty-eight hours Driver CPC

This option is particularly beneficial to occasional LGV drivers; those in managerial or supervisory roles. This also mitigates the risk of duplicated training spend. The option to include DCPC should be specified at the time of booking.

  • Assist your candidates to succeed

FTA provides introductory courses to gauge whether your candidates are ready for the challenge of Transport Manager CPC: 

For example: 

Option 1 – Use the OLAT course as a primer to test the knowledge and ability of your candidates. 
Option 2 – The Introduction to Road Transport Operations course may be be more suitable for those new into the industry, on a graduate ‘fast-track’ scheme or for staff employed by restricted O licence operator, who do not require a CPC.

Who should attend? 

Anyone wishing to demonstrate ‘professional competence’ for the purpose of operator licensing.
