A Transport Manager (TM) Refresher course is exactly what its name suggests; a training session for CPC holders, designed to keep their industry knowledge and working methods up to date. The TM Refresher course falls under the banner of Continuous Professional Development (CPD). When it comes to hiring, major haulage concerns are increasingly seeing CPD as an essential component of a prospective TM’s profile.
The only Transport Managers who, legally, need a TM Refresher course are those that have been cautioned by the Traffic Commissioner and advised to undertake CPD.
It is, however, becoming increasingly common for larger companies to insist that their Transport Managers are up-to-speed with changes to road haulage law, best practice and technology systems. Therefore, if you’re employed, or wish to be employed, by those larger companies, it’s in your best interests to complete CPD.
