About the book

A Study Guide for the Operator Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) in Road Freight 2018 is a vital study guide that offers the thorough preparation needed to pass the tough CPC exams in the UK. It covers the examination method used by the Oxford, Cambridge and RSA (OCR) and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). This is the Level 3 standard qualification overseen by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (OFQUAL) and the Welsh Assembly Government, which is required by any person wishing to operate vehicles over 3,500 kg, the maximum authorised mass for hire and reward, in the UK and internationally.

A Study Guide for the Operator Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) in Road Freight 2018 has been extensively revised to include all the new legislation. It covers the eight study sections that the directive requires: civil law; commercial law; social law; fiscal law; business; financial; management of the undertaking access to the market; technical standards and technical aspects of the operation road safety. It features many case studies, examples, diagrams and graphics. New to this edition: test questions after each section.

Praise for the previous edition:
This new book from Kogan Page is an important guide for students studying for the Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) examination. The book covers all of the key topic areas in the CPC and is written in an accessible, easy-to-read style with plenty of examples and case studies from industry. The self-test questions at the end of each chapter are particularly helpful as they are written in a way which prepares students for the different types of assessment questions in the OCR and the CILT exams. For trainers preparing students for the exam and for individuals who already hold the CPC and who want to refresh their knowledge, they will find this guide to be a very useful reference book.
