"We were contacted by Dee from National Safety Training Centre back in April to see if we would be interested in taking up the opportunity of some free fork lift training for our employees along with an NVQ qualification which would be relevant to the work that they currently did. Dee came down to our factory the following week and we were amazed by the package that they could offer us which would cost us a business nothing."GRP Building Solutions

It was reported by Commercial Motor yesterday that the United Road Transport Union (URTU) were raided by the Greater Manchester Police, where seven men were arrested and released on bail for fraud offences relating to Driver CPC.
This incident comes after the removal of their Driver CPC training approval by JAUPT back in December 2011 following a course that was held by URTU on September 4th 2011, for which there were 31 candidates present. Each driver paid £20 for the course, which included lunch.
Following the completion of the course two formal complaints were made to the DSA, noting that although the training was logged at 7 hours, the course began at 9am and ended at 2:15pm, with two 40 minute breaks inbetween. There were also some concerns regarding the quality of the training that the candidates had received. At the time this latest news went to press URTU were unavailable for comment.
The United Road Transport Union (URTU) became the first organisation in the UK to have their Driver CPC training approval removed by JAUPT and this news is a stark reminder why every Driver CPC training provider must adhere to regulations.
