With over 100,000 goods and passenger transport vehicles operating in Ireland on a daily basis, there is an increasing demand for bus and coach drivers. The Swilly Group has worked closely with a number of major employers in the freight transport industry to develop this cutting edge programme.

The course will cover the following core elements:
- Truck Driving Licence (RSA)
- Driver CPC Card (RSA)
- ADR Driver Training Certificate (HSA)
- Certificate in Advanced Driving (RoSPA)

The learners will complete 10 weeks of work placement in a freight transport company where they will gain experience in driving goods carrying vehicles. They will also experience the day to day operations and work environment within such a company.
