All HGV drivers must do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years in order to retain their Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC).
The FISA Forest Haulage Working group has been planning a focused course that will deliver a 7 hour Forest Haulage CPC +F module for drivers. This will include drivers of timber
haulage vehicles, low loaders, materials deliveries and fuel tankers. The FISA working group recommend that Harvesting FWM’s undertake the training to better understand haulage issues and that this is classed as Continual Professional Development (CPD).
