Training / Transport


In a world that is often reactive, we take a proactive stance, equipping you with the knowledge and skills you need to navigate future challenges. We believe in intercepting issues before they escalate into substantial problems, thus safeguarding your future and ensuring smooth operations.

One way we uphold this philosophy is through our educational programmes. We’re thrilled to introduce you to our Operator Licence Awareness Training (OLAT) course. Tailored for professionals like directors, managers, and planners who work closely with operator licences but are not transport managers themselves, this course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of operator licence requirements and regulations. Whether you’re a health and safety manager, an HR manager, or anyone who interacts with the transport function in a larger organisation, this course is for you.


Who Should Attend?

Understanding the intricacies of operator licensing can be complex, but it’s vital for those involved in the logistical and operational aspects of a business. While our traditional 2-day Transport Manager CPC refresher course is aimed at transport managers, our OLAT course is designed to fill a unique gap in the market. But who strictly should attend this specialised course?
