Simply Waste Solutions has become an official training centre for delivery of Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) for the Joint Approvals Unit of Periodic Training (JAUPT).
New drivers gain their Driver CPC by passing four initial qualification tests with both theory and practical assessments. Once qualified, every 5 years drivers must undergo 35 hours of periodic training to maintain this qualification.
Being recognised as a CPC training centre is fantastic news and testament to the high standards that we expect from all our frontline drivers. Being able to offer this training in-house, ensures that and training delivered is targeted to best facilitate the growth of the company.
Becoming a CPC training centre follows on from the success achieved last year when our Training Academy started delivering Emergency First Aid at Work to all our frontline staff. This is a Level 3 qualification and is equivalent to 5 GCSE’s or one A Level, a fantastic achievement for anyone to gain. It also, underpins our principles of investing in our people, such an important part of our business because in turn, they invest in us.
Training and investing in our people doesn’t stop there and is best shown with the introduction of our Driver Apprenticeship scheme. We bring shining stars forward to train them as the new generation of Simply Waste drivers, to read the success stories from last year click here.
