The training courses are aimed at managers and supervisors responsible for:

This module is suitable for managers of HGV, PCV and mixed fleets.

Each discounted webinar is offered at £75 + VAT per person and lasts six hours, with delivery split over two sessions of three hours each, with one hour for lunch.
