How Difficult is the Transport Manager CPC Qualification?

16 April 2021

For those looking for a career in transport management, a hugely valuable step is to gain your Transport Manager CPC qualification. As well as providing an unbeatable overview of the world of road transport, this qualification is a pre-requisite for anyone working professionally as a Transport Manager. Driver Hire Training can help you to gain your Transport Manager CPC, and a question we are often asked is, how difficult is transport manager CPC?

How difficult is Transport Manager CPC?

The Transport Manager CPC is a Level 3 qualification, so equivalent to an A-Level. This gives the qualification real credibility, but it’s also certainly the case that with the right commitment from the delegate, supported by sound learning materials and revision, anyone is more than capable of passing.

Why should I be interested in this qualification?

The average salary for a Transport Management position falls at £32,500 per annum, according to TotalJobs. It’s worth noting that by law, any transport company that holds a standard or standard international Operator’s Licence (O-Licence) must have a designated, qualified Transport Manager. So there will always be demand for people who can fulfil this role.

The upheaval in the logistics industry in recent years, in part thanks to Brexit and Covid, means that there is strong demand for capable, qualified Transport Managers. This may have the effect of pushing salaries higher.

Will the pandemic stop me from getting my Transport Manager CPC?

What are the benefits of online training?

The benefits of online training are extensive.. Attending a course is much more convenient, with travel issues taken out the equation, there is no need to worry about traffic, distance or modes of transport. Simply learn from wherever is best for you. We’ve also found that delegates benefit from meeting other delegates online from a wide variety of locations and backgrounds, which is not always the case with classroom-based courses.

To get the most out of your training, our top pointers include:

  • Create study goals – set aside a specific amount of time each day dedicated to revision
  • Do not jump between topics – learn each subject one at a time
