FTA Ireland is official Driver CPC provider

Dublin, Ireland: FTA Ireland is now approved by the Road Safety Authority to deliver Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) training in Ireland.

Aidan Flynn, FTA Ireland’s General Manager Business Services, said that with the 9 September deadline for this year’s training operators should books training “as a matter of urgency”.

The Driver CPC was introduced in the EU in 2008 for professional bus drivers and in 2009 for professional truck drivers to set and maintain standards of road safety, health and safety and driving among professional drivers of buses and trucks.

Drivers must undergo 35 hours of Driver CPC training over a five-year period, on a one-day-per-year basis.

FTA Ireland currently has two training centres registered in Dublin, with plans to go nationwide by January 2012 to meet the needs of the association’s growing Irish membership.

FTA Ireland, launched just over a year ago, is a not-for-profit membership trade association for the Irish freight and logistics industry.
