Hertfordshire-based Golden Boy Coaches has become the first coach operator to achieve CPT’s new and professionally-recognised Workshop Accreditation.

The accreditation, designed and launched in 2014 by CPT’s Engineering Committee with support from the Traffic Commissioners, assesses bus and coach operators’ workshops, as well as dealer workshops, against a series of in-depth engineering compliance and health and safety based procedures.

Golden Boy’s workshop on Geddings Road, Hoddesdon was assessed by CPT’s Compliance Partner, Lloyd Morgan Group on a wide range of competences over an intensive two day period during January.

Presenting Geraldine McIntyre and Paul Murdoch of Golden Boy Coaches with their Workshop Accreditation certificate (pic), CPT President, Bill Hiron said: “It gives me great pleasure to present Golden Boy Coaches with CPT’s Workshop Accreditation – the only industry specific accreditation that recognises the professional standards available to maintenance providers and ATF’s (Authorised Testing Facilities).

“Golden Boy Coaches is currently the only coach operator to hold the status, and it clearly demonstrates the importance they place on ensuring the highest levels of safety and compliance for both staff and passengers.”

Bill added: “I offer my congratulations to the small team here who have worked tirelessly and meticulously over the years to ensure that Golden Boy Coaches is worth of this industry status – and they certainly are.”
