Total Qualification Time (TQT) is defined as the number of hours which represent the total amount of time that could reasonably be expected to be required for a Learner to achieve and demonstrate the level of attainment necessary for the award of a qualification.
The core modules covered are:
- Managing Business Operations
- Managing Drivers
- Managing Compliance and Risk
- Managing Transport Operations
Operator Licence Awareness Training (also known as OLAT) covers the necessary types of compliance that must be understood by a transport operator.
Regulations state that an operator who seeks a standard National or International Licence must satisfy the Licensing Authority that they are either:
- Professionally competent
- Employing someone as a transport manager who is professionally competent.
The OLAT training course is designed to help all transport professionals develop their understanding of legal contingencies. This helps them ensure that there is compliance within their organisation.
The idea of the OLAT training is to reinforce the duties of a transport manager. This includes reiterating the requirements to maintain operator compliance.
An operator licence holder also has responsibility for legal use and mechanical condition of the vehicle in question.
