We have added a new free-to-use drivers’ CPC hours feature to the DAVIS platform to allow fleet and transport managers to keep training records up to date and manage the risk around those drivers who may be at risk of not completing the appropriate training in time.
Professional lorry, bus and coach drivers are required to complete a minimum of 35 hours of training every five years to maintain their Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC). Often training records are consigned to outdated spreadsheets which can be open to user error, loss of data and are unlikely to provide a risk forecast.
The new CPC Hours feature within DAVIS has been developed in response to client requests and is free to all existing platform users. The module provides managers with easy-to-read dashboards showing actionable data, including advance warnings of all drivers who are at risk of not completing their training within the required time frame.
Our Product Manager, James Povah, explains “the new CPC Hours feature provides managers with improved risk forecasting and advance notice of upcoming CPC expiry. As a result, the situation can be managed proactively and associated training planned accordingly. Overall, the new feature provides a more accurate view of risk with enhanced data now being added to the driver record . With warnings of upcoming CPC expiry highlighted on the system’s summary dashboard, DAVIS clients will have improved visibility of driver risk, ensuring that fleet and public safety is never compromised”
