Michelin has introduced a series of interactive JAUPT accredited Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) training courses designed to improve HGV and PSV drivers’ tyre knowledge and the quality of vehicle walkaround checks.
Held at the company’s Training Centre in Stoke-on-Trent or onsite at customers’ premises, the four half-day workshops – each led by one of Michelin’s five full-time instructors – offer tuition in four key areas: tyre identification, wear and damage patterns, wheel security and tyre maintenance.
Using a combination of classroom theoretical learning and hands-on practical experience, each module builds towards a solid understanding of the key components of vehicle walkaround checks.
Commenting, Carl Williams, from the Michelin Training Centre, said: “We’re conscious that some CPC courses aren’t very engaging. That’s why we’ve developed interactive, hands-on sessions that we believe will be of real benefit to drivers and managers. It’s surprising how many drivers carry out daily checks without fully understanding what they’re looking for”.
The portfolio of workshops at the Michelin Training Centre covers all aspects of the tyre industry, from fitting and technical courses for technicians, through to management training for tyre dealer depot managers and business owners.
