Management CPC Changing for 2012

From 4th December 2011, the shape of the Management CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) changed.

We would like to inform you of four important items about the future of the CPC, as set down by the new legislation and also by the Department for Transport.

1. As per the new legislation, the International and National CPC have been merged. This means that after the December 2011 session, all candidates who take the CPC will be examined in relation to both International and National content.

2. The Department for Transport have confirmed that OCR is allowed to offer the current International examinations (current units 6 & 7) alongside the new
provision. OCR plans to offer these examinations for a minimum of a year, to allow candidates who have achieved the National CPC to 'top up' to the International CPC without restarting the new qualification.

3. The rules for claiming grandfather rights are changing. In due course, VOSA will be in touch with all grandfather rights holders currently named on O-licences to set out the new arrangements.

4. The Department for Training have stipulated that candidates who only partially achieved a National CPC by December 2011 are not able to carry forward those achievements to the new qualifications. Candidates with only partial achievement need to complete the new qualification in full.
