RE Consultancy Transport Managers Course Level 3

REC can now offer the Level 3 Transport Managers Qualification. We have just completed our first course and have booked some more dates in our diary for a couple more in 2022.

We have one commencing Monday 19th September and another commencing 21st November. If you would like more info or to book then please give us a call on 01769 572447 or email at [email protected].

Further details on the course:

Any applicant for a standard national or a standard international goods vehicle operator’s licence must meet the required level of professional competency expected by the Traffic Commissioner, or must employ a transport manager who meets this requirement.

The Certificate of Professional Competence for Transport Managers (CPC) is the qualification that shows the Traffic Commissioner that this requirement has been met.

To gain the CPC for Transport Managers, candidates must pass two exams which are set by the C.I.L.T exam board.

The Multiple Choice exam consists of 60 questions, all of which have four possible answers. Candidates must identify the correct answer and mark the paper accordingly. This is not an open book exam, meaning that no notes or revision materials are allowed to be taken into the exam room.

The Case Study exam is based around a written scenario that is presented at the beginning of the exam. The scenario is based on a fictional goods vehicle operator, and candidates must study the information provided and answer the 4-8 questions accordingly. This is an open book exam, meaning that notes and revision materials are allowed to be taken into the exam room.


Our intensive classroom course runs for the nine working days preceding the exam, which ensures that all of the information candidates have learnt is fresh in the mind.
