Svella Asset Services has relaunched Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC) training for its HGV drivers this week at Huthwaite. The DCPC qualification is required by all vocational drivers in order to drive an HGV professionally and is achieved by undertaking 35 hours of periodic learning every five years.
A wide range of compliance-based topics are covered, including drivers’ hours, load security, DVSA enforcement and tachograph hygiene.
“This periodic training represents a significant investment in our vocational driver cohort and sets the scene for our long-term compliance strategy,” said Transport Operations Manager Paul Russell.
“Recent media coverage has highlighted the competitive nature of the HGV driver market, so therefore it is essential that we continue to nurture this highly valued skill set. It is always encouraging to see colleagues from different depots come together to share their experiences and opinions in a compliance focused environment.”
