The CPD Academy is a place where people can go to become better drivers, specifically for commercial vehicles like trucks.
The idea for the academy started because many older drivers were having trouble passing required tests to get a job as a driver, and there weren’t enough qualified younger drivers. The academy wants to train these drivers and make them safer on the road.
They even thought about using simulators but realized that wouldn’t work well for the transport industry.
Their goal is to be the best place in South Africa for commercial training drivers, so they changed the name from a training center to an academy.

What is the meaning of CPD Academy?
CPD Academy is a training center that aims to provide better training for commercial drivers.
The academy was started because many drivers refuse to undergo professional driver qualifications, which impacts their income.
To solve this, the academy provides pre-employment training so drivers don’t lose benefits. The academy wants to train drivers that will be professional and safer on the market.
They changed the name to academy because their goal is to be the best place to train commercial drivers in South Africa.
