We are now pleased to offer Driver CPC JAUPT First Aid courses.

This course is approved by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) to meet Driver CPC training requirements for professional drivers of large goods vehicles and passenger carrying vehicles.

The course counts towards seven hours of the required 35 hours training and provides with the skills and confidence needed to administer first aid in emergency situations while on the road.

What you will learn

Training is highly practical and takes a hands-on approach to learning first aid. The course covers:

The role of the first aider Fainting
Managing an emergency Primary survey
Communication and casualty care Resuscitation (adult CPR inc Defib)
Asthma Safer moving and handling
Bleeding (minor and severe) Shock
Bone, muscle and joint injuries Spinal injuries
Casualty management (outdoors) Treatment of an unconscious casualty
Chest pains  

Course duration

Drivers must complete the full 7hr course to gain the seven hours towards Driver CPC. If they do not complete the full course for any reason, they will not be accredited with the qualification or the training hours.


The Professional drivers first aid certificate is valid for three years. This means drivers can re-qualify within the same five-year JAUPT period and the training hours will count separately, giving a total of 14 hours Driver CPC training towards the required total of 35.

Each driver's details will be uploaded to the DVSA database within five working days of course completion.
