FTA Training has launched an online version of the Driver CPC course (eDCPC) to ensure HGV and PSV drivers can continue to receive vital compliance training under the government’s ‘social distancing’ rules. The online e-Driver CPC course is delivered as a 7-hour webinar, split into two 3.5 hour sessions delivered in a day. Course modules include: Operator Licence Compliance (OLC); Road Legal; Drivers’ Hours; Vehicle Safety; Safety First, and; Driving Values.

Dates are currently available throughout April and May, and learners are required to join the webinar session 30 minutes before the start time for registration and identification purposes. Access to a webcam is required. The webinars are delivered using the FTA’s Virtual Learning Environment platform. Attendees are able to view a presentation, watch linked videos, chat via instant messaging privately or publicly, join ‘break out’ rooms for group work, and answer live polls to check their understanding at intervals throughout the course.
