Norbert Dentressangle Logistics UK is investing in a new learning and development centre to provide certified CPC training at its head office in Northampton, as well as appointing an operational training manager.
The move comes ahead of the introduction of the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence, which becomes effective across Europe in September.
Training will be accredited by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training to ensure all new and existing drivers meet training requirements.
Chris Grey has been appointed operational training manager and will be responsible for organising this activity and ensuring all drivers at Norbert Dentressangle UK receive the required training.
Chris Dolby, Norbert Dentressangle learning & development manager, said: “The in-house training is designed to confirm and expand on the existing knowledge and skills of each driver. Delivered in conjunction with our safe driving plan, we can be confident that our drivers fulfil CPC requirements and continue to be safe, courteous and fuel-efficient drivers.”
