services that Sleafordian provided to Airwave for The Olympic

cooperation was greatly appreciated, along with their friendly

CPC driver training

JAUPT driver CPC audit the following comments were
"The trainer was confident and knowledgeable in the subject
matter and was able to deliver this in a professional manner
which ensured that all delegates took an active part in the
progression of the course. Understanding was constantly sought
from the drivers by the trainer using a variety of methods
including various questioning techniques.
The trainer had researched the subject thoroughly and had
sourced various training aids that gave the drivers the
opportunity to experience different situations first
Very well done to our trainer!

your delivery of the training course yesterday.
In my opinion it was generally accepted by the delegates that
you did a very professional job with the material you had to

5. Following a recent unannounced JAUPT driver
CPC audit the following comments were made - 2nd November
This was a well-organised and delivered course with all
mandatory elements of approval being met; the training room was
free from disruption and distraction, with enough seating and
desk space for 20 people. The room was well ventilated and lit;
facilities were adequate with toilets located close by.
Refreshments were available within the room and accessible
The trainer is an experienced teacher, having taught in primary
schools prior to working for Sleafordian as a driver and
trainer. The trainers knowledge and experience ensured that the
course was enjoyable for all in attendance; the candidates were
from mixed backgrounds, coach owner driver, company drivers,
and army drivers, all appeared to be enjoying the course and
provided excellent input to the course.
The JAUPT approved course criteria were achieved during the
period of assessment and there were no areas of development
raised on this occasion.'
6. CPT East Midlands Regional
Manager, Keith McNally commented: "
I recently attended a day's Driver CPC training at
Sleafordian. I have to say that this was a great example
of how an operator has accepted it, developed quality courses
for their staff and opened up these courses to other
operators. There was a great amount of experience in the
training room but nobody could have left that room saying that
they didn't learn something or been made to think about their
job/industry. It was clear that considerable thought and
effort had been put into developing the materials for the day
and these were presented professionally."
