IRU Certificate for Professional Competence (CPC) Manager
The International Road Transport Union (IRU) is the world road transport organization, which upholds the interests of bus, coach, taxi and truck operators to ensure economic growth and prosperity via the sustainable mobility of people and goods by road worldwide.
Professional competence today is a prerequisite for ensuring a competitive advantage to companies active on local and international markets. Establishing and managing a successful road transport company is becoming increasingly difficult in light of the multitude of complex international and national goods and passenger transport legislation currently in place.
Road transport is the backbone of economies and societies, on both local and global levels. With today's increasing awareness of security and environmental challenges, road transport professionals must comply with existing and anticipated regulations, and be familiar with the latest technologies that address these key issues. In the face of these challenges, the road transport training industry needs an exemplary framework for capacity-building to enhance its professionalism, efficiency, effectiveness and accountability.
The IRU Academy has established training standards for the Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) in international and national transport for road haulage on the basis of EU Regulation EC/2009/1071, international legal instruments and best practices.
The CPC Manager program aims at providing professionals with the knowledge and skills to perform in an environment in constant evolvement. Students of the IRU Academy's CPC Manager Programme find that their training is tailored to the practical needs of road transport companies and their drivers, and prepares them for today's increasingly demanding market and stringent regulations.
