Cemex has outsourced its driver CPC training to Fleet Source to maintain its FORS gold status.
Until 2015, Cemex used two in-house trainers to carry out all of its driver training, but as a FORS gold status company the requirement for their drivers to carry out vulnerable road user CPC training meant it needed to look for an external provider.
Additionally, Cemex needed a provider that was able to train in excess of 340 drivers on the first few working days of the year.
Fleet Source’s FORS approved vulnerable road user CPC courses met Cemex’s requirements, and were able to run 18 courses in the first few days of the year to allow all 340 drivers to be trained.
Cemex’s area logistics manager Simon Spelman said: “Fleet Source ensured that all the logistical planning was taken care of, including the set-up of the training room and location, a trainer for the course and all equipment necessary (such as bikes, safety equipment etc).”
“I personally attended a safe urban driving course and I can confirm that it was hugely beneficial. It certainly opened my eyes to the issues of cyclists vs the motor vehicle.”
Fleet Source’s managing director Nick Caesari said: “Fleet Source took on the challenge to accommodate Cemex’s complex needs and we are delighted to help the team achieve their training goals.
“As a company we are proud to be able to be flexible and to accommodate the key requirement of training 340 Cemex drivers in a matter of a few days.
"This allowed Cemex to get quickly back to their day to day business and for their drivers to return to work focused on being a better driver.”
