Does your logistics, removals, or warehouse business have employees who need to obtain their Cat C or Cat C+E licence? Are these staff members resident in Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens, Halton, or Wirral?

If you answered yes to both questions, then we have exciting news for you! TRS Training is running HGV Skills Bootcamps in Liverpool City Region for existing staff in logistics firms to get their licence. This blog will give you all the details about the course, who can participate, what it covers, and how it is funded.

Employees train with no disruption to regular job

The 16-week flexible course qualifies employees to drive vehicles up to 32 or 44 tonnes. The beauty of the course is that staff members on the course can carry on with their regular job and only need to attend: 1 day to complete the theory, hazard, and case study tests at the local test centre, eight one-day online classroom sessions, and either 5 or 10 days to complete the driving lessons and test at TRS Training’s school in Knowsley, depending on whether the employee is getting their Cat C or Cat C+E licence.

Skills and knowledge boost in addition to licence acquisition

To participate in the course, employees must be aged 19+, have a car licence, and reside in one of the six local authorities mentioned above. Besides licence acquisition, the course covers a wide range of subjects to ensure drivers have all the necessary knowledge and skills.

These include:

  • Theory Test Preparation
  • Driver’s Hours & Digital Tachographs
  • Health and Safety + MOD 2 case studies
  • Vulnerable Road Users
  • Carbon Emissions & Sustainability
  • Vehicle Loading & Security
  • Driver Health & Well-being, and
  • Safe & Fuel-Efficient Driving.

Funding covers all aspects of HGV Skills Bootcamp including medicals and test fees

Liverpool City Region Combined Authority funds the course via the LCR Skills Bootcamp programme with a modest contribution from the employer. The funding covers training, medicals, theory tests, driving lessons & LGV test fees (up to 2 attempts on all tests). So, participating in the course doesn’t have to break the bank for your business and employees, making it a win-win situation.
