Peak Performance introduces new courses

Peak Performance has introduced some new courses aimed at professional LGV drivers needing to complete their mandatory Driver Certificate of Professional Competence qualifications and those who ride motorcycles in the workplace.

Peak Performance has been delivering Driver CPC courses to its existing fleet clients for over 12 months and has been assessing feedback and refining course content accordingly. It is now ready to extend its reach in this sector and the 10 three and a half hour Driver CPC workshop-based courses accredited by JAUPT are available throughout the UK.

"As they are modular they can be completed individually over an extended period of time or condensed into one week long course in one go," says training director Les Hammond. "However I would caution against stringing the schedule out over too long a period - the deadline for completion of the training is September 2014. Without the ticket that proves the training has been done by that time, drivers will be on the road with invalid licences and could be un-employable."

For business bikers, the five hour long Advanced Rider Training course can be conducted on a one to one or two to one basis and commences with an introductory briefing followed by a practical on-road assessment. Following a review of the assessment, individual objectives are set for the coaching that follows, which, using a bike to bike intercom system, will take into account varying types of road and concentrate on raising riders' awareness of road risk.

Following completion of the course riders will receive a detailed report on their progress during the day, a DVD recording of the riding elements of the course and also the ability to download a certificate of course attendance.
