In these very challenging times, transport and logistics offer many excellent opportunities for those wishing to set up their own business.
A Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC ) in Transport Management is obligatory if you want to put your own truck or bus on the road and this qualification is increasingly becoming a prerequisite to pursuing a career in transport. As well as qualifying you to set up your own business this course will also enhance your career; qualify you as a transport manager; up-skill your abilities; and it will give you an internationally recognised qualification for life.
If you are unemployed or facing the loss of your job you may be entitled to funding for the course from your local FAS, local employment offices (Obair ), or Social Welfare. Certified by the Chartered Institute of Transport and Logistics, the subjects covered in the course include: setting up and managing a transport business; effective marketing techniques; employment, health and safety, and contract law; costing/pricing and financial management; tachograph and hours of driving legislation; national and international documentation, etc.
