First off, before we even begin, a warning – I’m feeling quite perky today. So if I sound excitable in this post, you lot will know why!
What made me so perky, you ask? Well, I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s always a good day when I can give my readers useful information – and if you haven’t guessed, today is just such a day!
That’s right – today, I have some juicy titbits to share with you all, especially those of you who may be looking for courier driver training. In fact, if you want to develop your skills but aren’t sure where, this is very much the blog post for you.
Over the past week I’ve done a little research on Stevie’s behalf and come up with a really good courier driver training course. Naturally, the minute I discovered it I just had to come here and share it with you all.
Managing Your Operations
The course I found is called ‘Managing Your Operations’, and it’s all about…well, managing your operations, obviously. Specifically, how to supervise, organise and generally manage operations when you’re the owner of a fleet or work at a courier dispatch. But from all the feedback I found, the course is apparently just as helpful for van operators as it is for managers.
As far as what you’ll be learning, this course teaches you a bit of everything, really. From vehicle security and towing systems to driver licensing, speed limits and the best way to secure a load or take care of your vehicle. The creators of this programme clearly want drivers who take it to be as well versed as possible in all things courier related.
What’s even better is that if you pass the course you’ll get your own Certificate of Van Excellence, issued by the FTA themselves! And I don’t need to tell you how good that can look on a driver’s CV, now, do I?
So if you’re looking for some courier driver training, I strongly recommend you consider this programme (I’ve included the link up above). It looks like it could be extremely helpful to anyone whose work involved driving or managing a courier van, and it gives you a really useful certification. Now can you see why I got so excited for you?
Anyway, that’s it from me for now. Until next week…ta-ra!

Well, it appears I may have to eat a small serving of my words this week. Why am I embarrassed, you might ask? Well, if you were paying attention you'll know that last week I published a post about how I was glad owner driver jobs were becoming more popular in order to offer some healthy competition to Royal Mail. I was saying I think it's a lesson for the Post Office not to get smug and to actually update their prices.Read the full article
