Customized Trainings for short-distance and delivery drivers

DEKRA Akademie extends its portfolio in the field of transport and warehouse logistics. The company offers tailor-made courses for the legally required qualification of professional short-distance and delivery drivers. Especially for this target group, DEKRA Media has updated and republished the trusted series of learning material for professional drivers.

The problem: Many drivers and carriers in short-distance and delivery traffic are not aware of the fact that the Occupational Driver’s Qualification Act is directed at them as well. But anybody who drives a vehicle between 1.5 and 7.5 tons – for example with the former German license category 3 has to complete a vocational training. And the time is running out: 35 hours of training must be attested before September 10, 2014. Because of this, experts predict a chokepoint in the availability of trainings, since many companies haven’t started training their employees yet. This might increase the shortage of skilled professionals.

As an officially recognized educational provider, DEKRA Akademie offers all required trainings in individual modules of 7 hours length or as comprehensive package of 35 hours – with highest quality and in all of Germany. Interested companies have the possibility of receiving in-house trainings and/or adding individual content to the trainings.
