Training success for Transport Manager qualification
The training arm of EYMS Group in Hull, EYMS Bus & Coach Training, has just achieved a notable ‘first’ with all four candidates passing their transport manager exams.
The training division was accredited by CILT only a few months ago to deliver this training, and training manager, Darren Kendrew, is naturally delighted that the first four candidates, all operational managers from within EYMS itself, have passed the examination with marks as high as 96%.
Already over one-third of EYMS Training’s driver CPC modules are delivered to third parties, and coaching for the Transport Manager qualification is now to be made available as part of the expanding portfolio of training available from EYMS.
With the demand for more transport managers to be nominated on PSV ‘O’ licences, it is expected that many more people in the bus industry will wish to become qualified in this way and with its already excellent reputation for delivering successful training, EYMS hopes that this will be another string to its bow.
EYMS recently announced that its instructors were to be themselves trained to deliver training to recognise and help passengers with dementia. A new driver CPC module ‘Understanding Dementia’ has now been approved and added to EYMS’ prospectus.
The division has also won another contract with the DWP to deliver PCV licence acquisition training, adding to a number of DWP driver CPC training contracts it has successfully won in the last couple of years.
The successful candidates now qualified as Transport Managers at EYMS are Ray Hill (operations manager), Chris Agar and Rob Carr (district managers north and south respectively) and David Shipp (until recently Whittles GM and now performance and business development manager at East Yorkshire).
