Tesco invests in Driver CPC 18 December 2009

To help its drivers achieve the Driver CPC standard, and to cut costs and emissions, Tesco has enlisted the help of System Training, which will train a group of driving instructors, who will, in turn, go tutor more than 3,000 van and truck drivers for the supermarket chain.

The instructors will be sent on a five-day instructor training course, before completing another two-day train-the-trainer study. Having completed similar courses for Asda, with its fleet of Scania trucks, and currently working with DHL Automotive and Home Delivery Network, System Training has plenty of experience.

The deal is part of Tesco's plan to meet new Driver Certificate of Professional Competence law and cut fuel use by an estimated 7%. System Training will use the DfT-backed Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving Scheme to help meet the targets for lower fuel consumption and emissions.

System Training is also working with MAN dealerships, which recommend this training outfit to fleet managers purchasing new trucks.
