PCV Drivers CPC Disability Equality Training Course

ESL Services provides the PCV Drivers CPC Disability Equality Training Course (CRS12787/1276), JAUPT approved, for and on behalf of Radical Travel Group.

The Disability Equality Training for drivers and other relevant staff is a requirement imposed by EU Regulation No 181/2011 (Passenger Rights).

These rules apply to ‘regular services’ (timetabled buses and coaches, local or long distance) and cover drivers and personnel who deal directly with the travelling public or with issues relating to the travelling public.

The PCV Drivers CPC Disability Equality Training Course

Duration: 7 hours

Location: In a classroom and outdoor/yard setting and includes the following:

  • Awareness of and appropriate responses to passengers with physical, sensory (hearing and visual), hidden or learning disabilities.
  • Barriers faced by a person with a disability and persons with reduced mobility, including attitudinal, environmental/physical and organisational barriers.
  • How to recognised assistance dogs.
  • How to handle wheelchairs and other mobility aids carefully so as to avoid damage (if any, for all staff who are responsible for luggage handling).

At the end of the course the attendee’s will have the necessary knowledge and understanding of the people with disabilities.

Also the existing barriers, how to help providers better service and create a better inclusive culture.

According to the Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT)’s view, on the CPT Compliance Manual (Chapter 3, Drivers), the Disability Equality Training course should be a requirement to be provided to non-driving staff (inspectors and staff who answer telephone enquiries or written communications from customers).

In addition, supervisory and managerial staff who deal with passengers or issues relating to passengers would come into scope.
