What is the minimum age to gain the Transport Manager qualification?
Learners can register for the Operator CPC exams from the age of 16. However, it should be made clear that the Traffic Commissioners in Great Britain have indicated that it is highly unlikely that they would accept anyone under the age of 18 as an appropriate transport manager for the purposes of satisfying the professional competence requirements to hold or apply for of an operators’ licence.
How long does the Transport Manager qualification last?
The Skills and Education Group (SEG) qualification is currently a lifetime award and holders will be considered professionally competent for the rest of their lives. However, professional competence can be affected at any time by certain personal circumstances, for example, if the holder is convicted of certain criminal offences.
It is also considered best practice to undertake a Transport Manager refresher course every 5 years to keep up to date with changes within the industry.
Are there any pre-requisites to undertake the course?
Although there are no specific entry requirements for this qualification, it is recommended that students have good English and Maths skills equivalent to Level 2 (GCSE) before they begin studying the CPC qualification at Level 3.
Can I do a Transport Manager course via distance learning?
Yes! Because our Transport Manager courses are run online you can complete it as a distance learner. The only time you would need to leave the comfort of your own home is when travelling to an exam centre on exam day!
