Fleet Source, a leading provider of training for the road transport industry, has been chosen by A-Plant to be their main provider for driver CPC training.
A-Plant is one of the UK’s largest plant, tool and equipment hire companies, hiring a range of non-operated equipment, from power tools, cement mixers and accommodation units to excavators, compressors, scissor lifts and other types of equipment for industry and construction.
It is a FORS Gold accredited operator and to remain compliant, it has specific driver training requirements, including drivers being required to undertake vulnerable road user awareness training such as safe urban driving.
Following consultation with Fleet Source, A-Plant appointed the company as its primary training partner based its experience in working with clients with large fleets and its ability to deliver large scale training programs nationally and its ability to hold and deliver training sessions at A-Plant’s locations across the country, ensuring minimal downtime for drivers and reduced travel costs.
“After a successful meeting with Fleet Source, we knew that they were the right provider to manage our driver training in-line with our long term projects and help us achieve our training goals,” said Shaun Winstanley, director of transport services at A-Plant.
“They were professional, helpful and met all of our training needs, so they were the ideal provider to deliver such a vast training program.”
Rebecca Guest, FORS administrator at A-Plant, said: “The booking process was very simple – we decided what courses to book, contacted our dedicated Fleet Source client relationship manager to find out available dates in which they could send a trainer to our sites and then we confirmed. It really was that easy.”
Fleet Source has provided more than 1,400 A-Plant drivers in 36 locations across the UK with DCPC training since 2016.
“Fleet Source has many years of training experience and we understand that driver training isn‘t a part of our customers’ everyday business,” said Nick Caesari, managing director at Fleet Source. “We therefore build and deliver bespoke training packages to fit our customers’ needs, and make it easier for them to continue with their day to day business.
“Our experienced instructors ensure that the attendees are fully engaged in their particular training, that they are learning how to improve their driving skills and to also enjoy the overall training experience.”
