Gwent-based Ferryman has built a new training centre on its Pontllanfraith site, with a conference style suite, training resources and screens.
The purpose-built facility aligns with the recent qualification of office staff member and ex Class 1 driver Paul Chivers as a driver-assessor, giving Paul a space to conduct all classroom-based driver coaching. The driver training programme will be split between practical in-cab and discussion sessions, with an ongoing programme of coaching on safety, hazard awareness and fuel efficiency.
The company will also conduct all its Driver CPC sessions on its own premises and hopes in time to extend the training offerings to all of the staff and external candidates.
The centre has been decorated with a mural of Ferryman flagship vehicles by local graffiti artist Walls by Paul.
