Driver CPC Course Quality Self Assessment Checklist

Driver CPC Course Quality Self Assessment Checklist

As TMconsultant affiliate consortium members you know it is very likely you will have an unannounced visit from JAUPT at some point. So here is JAUPT’s Driver CPC Course Quality Self Assessment Checklist to help you better understand what the auditor will be looking for. I’ve included the top line headers below. For the full downloadable PDF version click here 

The purpose of Course Quality Assurance Visit is to check whether standards are being maintained across courses being delivered. An approved training course can be subject to unannounced visits at any time from a JAUPT or DVSA/DVA representative and a similar form will be completed. To help you with this process we have devised this self-assessment checklist so that you are aware of. We hope that this self-assessment will assist you with the identification of areas of continuous improvement and ensure that you are ready for any visit by a JAUPT or DVSA/DVA auditor. The areas covered include: the quality and delivery of the training, knowledge transfer, the learning environment, the course content, ensuring the course is being delivered in line with the approved course layout and identification checks and registration. Where possible we have indicated a link to resources which may assist you when completing the form. The responsibility for quality and safety at an approved training centre lies with the responsible contact i.e. the person operationally responsible for periodic training. By completing this self-assessment it is not in itself a suitable and sufficient means of ensuring full compliance.
