Geach leads convoy of Driver Academy graduates
4th August 2022Tweet
Copart has celebrated its first Driver Academy graduate.
Luke Geach from its Bristol Operation Centre has become the first colleague to complete the course, which was introduced in January in partnership with carbon neutral training provider HGVC with the goal of delivering 100 fully-trained drivers in its first year.
Geach, who joined the company in March as a Trainee Transport Driver, said, “My training was both varied and at times challenging but with hard work and support from my management and teammates I have been able to achieve my goal of obtaining my C+E HGV licence.”
The Academy programme begins with theory, before students spend time in a Copart Operation Centre learning about the yard processes and shadowing an experienced Driver mentor to observe their daily duties, including safely loading and unloading vehicles from our multi-car transporters.
This is followed up by the practical elements of the course, with further training in Copart transporters and off-site tests and assessments.Tweet
