Procters Coaches Gains Driver CPC Training through Bridgestone
Northallerton based coach operator Procters Coaches has put the first three of its vehicle technicians through Bridgestone’s popular and successful Roadside Technician course. In addition to gaining the Roadside Technician ID card, Keith Thompson also gained 14 hours towards his driver CPC training as the course is accredited through the Institute of Vehicle Recovery.
Paul Turner, Bridgestone UK Training Manager, stated that “although the vast majority of the 450+ delegates who have attended the Roadside Course are from within the tyre industry, Bridgestone UK is more than happy to extend the training to our end users and look forward to accommodating further technicians from Procters”. The two day Bridgestone Roadside course consists of three elements (Customer Care, Assessing the Roadside Situation and Health & Safety) and gained accreditation from the IVR in May 2008.
Philip Kenyon, fleet engineer for Procters Coaches North Yorkshire said “Procters Coaches have worked with Bridgestone for four years and we are delighted to now be able to use their training department to enhance our vehicle technicians awareness and safety whilst working at the roadside through the Roadside Technician course. Procters take the safety and training of our staff very seriously and the addition of the CPC accreditation adds even more value to the two day course. Feedback from all technicians who have attended has been positive and we look forward to sending more technicians and drivers on further Bridgestone courses.”
