Transporter training from VTT

By Categories: Commercial NewsPublished On: Monday 27 June 2022

VTT has been trading as a specific car transporter training provider since 2015, offering driver certification and structured training modules to address risk and improve safety.

Over this period VTT has worked with the HSE and DVSA as well as leading manufacturers and insurance providers, which it says ensure the highest standards and support for its customers.

Its modules include new driver training, a two-day ‘train the trainer’ course, and a half-day higher level driver assessment called VTT Certified, covering safe loading, personal safety and driving assessment using a specific safe system of work.

VTT also offers specialist familiarisation services to operators receiving new transporters, to ensure their drivers are fully aware of the deck and system operations, thereby avoiding damage and improving operational reliability.

All training modules are fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, and VTT’s own specific Driver CPC courses have received full accreditation from JAUPT, and is said to provide drivers with up-to-date legal compliance and safe loading instruction and advice for their role.

VTT offers two specific safe loading DCPC courses aimed at the vehicle logistics industry. One is a ‘one to one’ course, which is a full day and incorporates the VTT Certified module as well as drivers’ hours and a SAFED (Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving) module; and the other is a group safe loading and legal compliance course.

“These innovative periodic modules will deliver comprehensive safe loading training as well as driver legal compliance requirements to ensure all drivers have an up-to-date knowledge of operating standards and legal responsibilities,” said the company.

“Using classroom and practical instruction, these modules have been developed to give the driver what they need rather than a generic course containing non-specific information.”

Able to support all fleet sizes, VTT continues to develop bespoke training and certification programmes which it says can be delivered to drivers with the minimum of disruption to their customers’ operation.
