I start the Drivers Certificate of Professional Competence tomorrow. It is a very early start so I have to be up at 6am. I am expecting a week of government dictated course work that adds no value to the people who have to pay to take the course. However to be an HGV (truck) driver in Europe you now need to take 35 hours of professional training every 5 years to get your dCPC card and without the card you can’t drive anything over 3.5T for a living. I am looking forward to hearing lots of new uses of words like compliance, regulation, statutory and requirement. I also bet that like most government required courses it will be given by someone who hasn’t been in the industry but knows how to tick all the right check boxes when putting a documentation pack together.
I will let you know how it goes.
