In today's working environment, competitiveness, economic efficiency and safety are continuously growing in importance. Business owners are no longer just relying on technical vehicle innovations.
The cost of purchasing a new vehicle can be significantly reduced by government subsidy programmes. MAN ProfiDrive helps you develop the optimal package and provides advice and information regarding the application.
However, the qualified advanced training of drivers is now also a focal point for cost reduction. Employees who have perfect command of their vehicles and receive intensive training on technical innovations and how to optimally use them, make as much of a contribution to a positive result as employees who know how to avoid risks on the road by driving cautiously and safely. This not only increases overall safety but also reduces consumption and lowers expenses for wear and tear. In addition, sick absences of drivers can also be minimised through appropriate training measures.
With 40 years of expertise, MAN ProfiDrive has made a significant contribution to the all-round support for business owners, fleet managers and drivers in over 67 countries worldwide. MAN ProfiDrive has continuously improved and expanded in terms of its daily dealings with customers as well as the available training portfolio. These days, customer-specific training solutions in niche markets are just as much part of the MAN ProfiDrive training range as professional driver training in accordance with the law governing the qualification of professional drivers (BKrFQG).
Every five years professional drivers have to complete a total of 35 hours of advanced training, made up of five training units of seven hours each in the three areas of knowledge.
MAN ProfiDrive gives you the opportunity to complete all the legally required advanced training measures.
The following training sessions can be booked and implemented with and without the training for professional drivers.
Areas of knowledge according to the BKrFQG
MAN offers you training courses in four different subject areas:Basics, economic efficiency, safety and sector/area of application. Furthermore, other application-specific training courses in the area of “on-the-job training” are also available.
Please filter according to vehicle type and subject area to find the relevant training courses.
