Why is the Driver CPC relevant to the extractives industry?

Workplace transport continues to be one of the highest risk sectors in the extractives industry. The reasoning behind the Driver CPC is to make sure only those who are highly skilled can drive heavy-duty vehicles.



What is the Driver CPC and why do I need to do training?

The Driver CPC is a qualification brought to bear by a recent European Union directive. Drivers of heavy duty vehicles must have the CPC qualification alongside their vocational licence, or they cannot legally drive these vehicles. Drivers must do 35 hours of periodic training every five years to keep their Driver Certificate of Professional Competence.
