Comprehensive course with excellent tutors, intensive as it needs to be, the only comment would be is that the focus was on the Exam 1 exam multi choice and less on Exam 2. This is my personal perspective and I am sure others on the course would reflect differently.

Bob and Melanie are the two other pieces of the perfect puzzle, which is why Pearson's is the best at what they do. The team are with you all the way, you are not just a number in the classroom.

FAQ's

How to become a transport manager

You need a professional qualification called the Transport Manager Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) to become a Transport Manager.  You do not need a driving licence.

What does a Transport Manager do?

Responsible for ensuring that all legislative requirements are met, relating to the driving and operation of vehicles used under the licence, for example,  ensuring that the rules on drivers’ hours and tachographs are adhered to.  Ensuring proper records are kept and stored. Ensuring systems are in place for defect reporting, safety inspections, routine maintenance, and repairs.
