MAN ProfiDrive® - Training courses by professionals for professionals
The commercial transport world is growing in complexity. While good professional drivers used to be distinguished primarily by the fact that they drove their trucks as safely and economically as possible, the focus today is increasingly on customer requirements, legislation, guidelines and general knowledge of new vehicle technologies. All these factors are continuously redefining the professional everyday work of truck drivers, fleet operators, driving instructors and experts, and regularly present them with new challenges.
MAN ProfiDrive® provides a qualified training system that focuses on the needs of the driver while also taking account of the needs of business owners. The range of courses available covers both theoretical advanced training based on the law governing the qualification of professional drivers (BKrFQG), and professional and practical training to make everyday driving safer and more economical. What’s more, all participants benefit from over 30 years of experience in teaching theoretical and practical knowledge of safety and economy in road transport.
Advanced training based on the law governing the qualification of professional drivers (BKrFQG)
Every five years professional drivers have to complete 35 hours of advanced training, made up of five training units of 7 hours each in the three areas of knowledge (driving style, regulations, and transport and environmental safety). This is based on both the law governing the qualification of professional drivers (BKrFQG) and the associated ordinance (BKrFQV). Both define the content to be taught in theoretical and practical training programmes.
MAN ProfiDrive® provides an opportunity to complete all advanced training required by law which helps to improve the safety of drivers and reduce pollution. We are happy to advise on matters relating to funding such as de minimis as well as the planning and organising of training courses.
