Who Should Attend?
This course is designed for those working in the Traffic Office team and the surrounding transport environment including managers, supervisors , traffic office staff, and, indeed anyone for whom knowledge of operational procedures, Drivers' Hours Laws and the tachograph would be beneficial.
Throughout the course, those attending are asked to complete several short exercises relating to details they have been given. These exercises are not collected in, as they build in to a set of course notes that can be taken away at the end of the day by those attending.
This course is run on an informal basis. Questions are answered as they arise throughout the course.
The course provides a flexible framework which can, if required, be tailored to the specific requirements of a given company. Aspects of the legislation of particular relevance to a company can be highlighted. For bespoke courses, timings can be changed and run over multiple days to help minimise disruption to day-to-day operations.
