DriveTech goes online to meet Driver CPC training demands

DriveTech, the driver education and risk management arm of the AA, has switched from classroom to digital-based driver training during the COVID-19 crisis.

Although the impact of Covid-19 has resulted in all classroom-based courses being postponed or cancelled, it doesn’t mean the need for training and fleet vehicle maintenance has diminished. In fact, for the transport industry in particular, there is an increased demand for delivery of essential items such as food and medicines.

As a starting point, DriveTech created a free online guide, aimed at any drivers volunteering or being asked to help out in these unprecedented circumstances – helping to keep them safe, stay the right side of the law and save lives.

Driver CPC Courses now available online

Since then, DriveTech has obtained agreement to deliver JAUPT-approved and FORS-accredited courses online.

Courses will be delivered ‘live’ by qualified trainers via Microsoft Teams – a free, secure, reliable and accessible digital platform. The virtual classroom will allow up to ten delegates at any one time, making sure the essential interaction of traditional classroom training is achieved, whilst staying safe and adhering to the Government restrictions on social distancing.

Registration and identity checks are undertaken digitally before every course and each delegate is monitored and assessed throughout to verify full course attendance, and perhaps more importantly to ensure learning outcomes are achieved. Finally, in line with existing JAUPT guidelines, for the courses that are usually seven hours in length, the training will need to be completed within a 24-hour period, meaning the courses will be split across an afternoon and the following morning.

Nick Butler, Fleet Director at DriveTech, commented: “Despite the Coronavirus curveball, DriveTech remains committed to road safety. The virtual delivery of our Driver CPC courses means we can meet our customers’ demands – after all, the clock is always ticking for professional drivers to complete their compulsory periodic training. And remember, drivers can still complete training even if they have been furloughed.”

Do not get caught out with a growing backlog of CPC training – keep on top, or even get ahead - and make sure you hit the ground running post this crisis.
