Targeted, tailored elearning to develop safer on-road behavoiurs
Press release | April 2020
TTC Group is now able to deliver its JAUPT (Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training) approved Driver CPC courses and core fleet manager courses online in virtual classrooms.
The impact of Covid-19 has brought significant challenges to many businesses and the face-to-face training industry in particular. Nearly all classroom-based courses have been postponed or cancelled, although the need for training and maintaining vehicle fleet compliance has not diminished.
Driver CPC courses now available online
That’s why TTC Group is delighted to confirm that it has obtained formal approval from JAUPT – the organisation for quality assurance programme of centres and courses for the Driver CPC periodic training – to deliver all its half-day courses and its Driver Personal Performance course online from Wednesday 15th April.
The 3½-hour courses offered include:
All courses will be delivered ‘live’ with expert trainers delivering the courses for up to twelve delegates at a time within a virtual classroom. The classroom allows each delegate to see, interact with and ask questions of the trainer, and other delegates, as well as viewing and hearing the same content delivered on traditional face-to-face courses.
Some courses will run ‘closed’ for individual companies who just want their drivers to undertake private training, while others will be ‘open’ for any bus, coach or truck driver to book and join in.
As per the existing JAUPT guidelines, seven hours of training will be required during a 24-hour period meaning each driver will need to complete two different 3½ courses within that period.
Fleet Risk Management courses online
TTC Group is simultaneously announcing its capability to deliver a number of its fleet and driver risk management courses online. These 90-minute courses aim to bring managers up to speed with their crucial duty of care responsibilities to the employees when they drive for work.
All courses can be booked by calling TTC Customer Services on 03330 113 113.
Jim Kirkwood, CEO TTC Group, commented: “We’ve always taken great pride in delivering excellent face-to-face driver training across our business that changes the attitude and behaviour of drivers for the better.
“The business environment has changed out of all recognition and we needed to react quickly. That’s why I’m delighted we can now offer our training using virtual classroom technology.
“We’ve had to pull together a dedicated team to make our dream a reality, as well as liaising closely with JAUPT to get their formal approval to move online in record time. Clearly, necessity is the mother of invention, but you need a great team to deliver it quickly, and at TTC, we are fortunate to have one. ” he added.
