Consisting of 9 modules, this BTEC qualification is designed for both existing drivers and those new to the industry. It is also relevant for support staff as there is no driving assessment included. Learning for each unit is then assessed by an online test.
At DPT we group the 9 units into 2 groups covering the main topics. This enables us to show drivers the relevance of each unit to the others in that group.
On successfully passing the online test, the driver then has the option to apply to the Sector Skills Council, People 1st, to be placed on their register of professional drivers and receive a certificate and badge to recognise their achievement. This option is only available through trainers like DPT who have achieved the People 1st quality standard.
