CPC Road Haulage Transport Managers Course

CILT – CPC Road Haulage Transport Managers Course

CILT  Level 3 Certificate of Professional Competence for Transport Managers Road Haulage Qualification

The CILT CPC Road Haulage syllabus has been completely revised due to new European Union Legislation which came into force on 4th December 2011. As a result of this, the CPC Qualification now covers the National & International Road Haulage Operations together in one qualification.

The qualification is assessed at Level 3 of the National Qualification Framework, and is comparable to other qualifications at Level 3, e.g. NVQ Level 3, Advanced GNVQ and A-Level. There are no formal requirements for entry onto to the course.

Candidates will be expected to have a reasonable standard of literacy and numeracy and a level of Road Transport industry knowledge appropriate for a person working at Level 3.

The CILT qualification consists of 2 examinations as follows:-

Unit R1 – Certificate of Professional Competence (Road Haulage) Multiple Choice – A 2-hour examination consisting of 40 multiple choice questions. This examination is a closed book exam, so no revision materials will be allowed. The pass mark is 28 out of 40 (which is a pass mark of 70%).

Unit R2 – Certificate of Professional Competence (Road Haulage) Case Study – A 2 hours and 15 minutes examination consisting of 3  case study questions. This examination will be an open book exam, so reference materials will be allowed.  A pass mark of 50% is required.

Candidates are required to pass both units to be awarded the Certificate of Professional Competence, but not necessarily at the same time.

The CILT CPC Exams are held 6 times a year around the UK and the dates are usually set in January, March, June, August, October & December.

The closing date for candidate entry for the CILT CPC Examinations is the Friday exactly three weeks before the Examination Date. There can be no late entries or cancellations after this date.  Candidates will be required to complete an appropriate course of study, either here at DLT Training Ltd or have completed a CILT Home Study course and have been registed with the CILT.

This course is now a 10 day course and exams on the following Tuesday of the course end date.
