About the book

A Study Guide for the Operator Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) in Road Freight is a vital study guide that offers the thorough preparation needed to pass the tough CPC exams. This is the Level 3 standard qualification overseen by OFQUAL and the Welsh Assembly Government which is required by any person wishing to operate vehicles over 3,500kgs maximum authorised mass for hire and reward, both in the UK and/or internationally.

A Study Guide for the Operator Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) in Road Freight covers the examination method used by both OCR and CILT. It covers the 8 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.

The new book has been extensively revised to make it more accessible and understandable. It features many more case studies, examples, diagrams and graphics. There are also test questions for each section.

Reviews

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.
