Petroleum Driver Passport and Driver CPC Periodic Training

All tanker drivers covered by PDP are also required to hold and maintain a Driver CPC.  A series of Petroleum Product course and module layouts have been developed with the support of JAUPT (Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training), to enable employers and training providers to create programmes which meet both PDP and Driver CPC Periodic Training requirements.  This enables time spent by a driver in PDP training to be recorded as Periodic Training time and therefore count towards the Driver CPC requirement of 35 hours of training in each five year cycle.

PLEASE NOTE: Queries related to the use of these Course Layouts and the JAUPT approval process should be directed to JAUPT and not to the PDP team at SQA.

JAUPT Approval required

All Driver CPC Periodic Training must be carried out in an approved course delivered by an approved centre. These approvals are obtained from JAUPT www.jaupt.org.uk and must be obtained before training commences.

Employers and training providers wishing to combine PDP and Driver CPC Periodic Training must therefore obtain approval from JAUPT as a Driver CPC Periodic Training centre and gain approval for a course or courses before starting training activity. 

Petroleum Product Course Layouts

JAUPT require all proposed courses to be set out in a template Course Layout which enables JAUPT to assess the course objectively and make their approval decision.  Driver CPC Periodic Training is typically delivered in a 7 hour course.  A course can be created by combining two 3.5 hour modules, enabling appropriate content to be delivered to a driver or group of drivers.  

A series of Petroleum Product course and module layouts have been developed by Cogent Skills to provide a straightforward route for employers and training providers to submit course layouts for approval. The titling and content of these models has been reviewed by and agreed with JAUPT,  so competent submissions using these Petroleum Product course layouts will be compliant with JAUPT requirements.
