At Connection Couriers, we are able to provide a competitive quotation to carry fireworks distribution (1.1G, 1.2G, 1.3G, 1.4G and 1.4S) throughout our nationwide network. We can call upon the expertise of in-house DGSA’s (Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers) and we have fully-trained drivers and fully-equipped vehicles available, from vans to articulated units and trailers.
All operational staff receive mandatory dangerous goods awareness training. Many drivers and some key operational staff are trained to a higher level and hold an ADR vocational training certificate for all classes of dangerous goods including explosives such as Fireworks.
As an approved, independent training provider, we provide ADR training that ensures a level of consistency and procedural continuity within our industry and our organisation.
Our staff and drivers are familiar with terms such as NEQ/NEC (Net Explosive Quantity/Content) and are aware that there are specific load thresholds involved for Fireworks Distributors.
What is CPC Training?
Professional lorry drivers are legally required to hold a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) in addition to their vocational driving license.
To keep your Driver CPC status, you will need to do at least 35 hours of CPC periodic training in each five-year period. Periodic training involves attending courses on various aspects of professional driving.
Connection Couriers are a leader in the haulage and transport sector, consequently we can offer courses that are highly practical and relevant for your drivers since our experience is based on the real world rather than the classroom.
We have great flexibility in delivering the 35 hours (5 days) required to complete the CPC Training course.
What is CPC Training : Driver CPC training is continuing professional development which carries on throughout a lorry driver’s career.

To comply with new EU legislation, the majority of existing LGV drivers need to complete 35 hours of periodic training by September 2014. The onus is on the driver to ensure he undertakes this training and failure to complete the 35 hours in time will result in the driver being unable to drive a large goods vehicle legally. It is that simple. Once achieved, the training begins again 5 years hence, for example; 35 hours gained by September 2014 would mean that a driver will need to begin the periodic training again from September 2019.
The need for on-going training within the transport industry has never been more relevant and can only improve industry standards, raise awareness and build on existing skills and knowledge.
