Anyone fulfiling the role of Transport Manager for an operator should be able to provide their Professional Competence Certification. Additionally, “applicants for the post of Transport Manager should possess high-quality professional knowledge”, according to the Senior Traffic Commissioner’s statutory documentation on Transport Managers.

This high-quality professional knowledge may include the undertaking of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), which is conscious and proactive learning that develops and enhances the Transport Manager’s abilities.

CPD could include training workshops, conferences and events, e-learning programs, best practice techniques and ideas sharing.

There isn’t a specified requirement for the frequency of Transport Manager CPD, though drivers are required to complete 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years.

Though there isn’t any formal requirement for Transport Managers to undertake CPD at specific intervals, it is still good practice for any professional to continue proactively learning throughout their career.

This Transport Manager CPD reflection log template gives Transport Managers way to make the most of any training or CPD they undertake, by keeping a self-reflection log of any lessons learned, and reflecting on how the training could apply to their organisation.

In the Transport Manager CPD reflection log template, you will answer questions on your CPD or training, including:

  • What was the topic of the training?
  • What do you hope to learn from this training?
  • Have you discovered anything new through this training?
  • How has this training benefited you?
  • What actions will you take back to implement in your organisation?
  • Is there anything else you would still like to learn on this topic after taking the training?
