The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport Australia has announced Queensland-based John Duffy as the first Australian Certified Passenger Professional (CPP).

The CPP certification was launched late last year in pilot mode, and brings together the skills required of a modern passenger manager, planner, operator or public policy administrator.

It provides a benchmark of excellence for measuring capability and proficiency within passenger transport.

CILTA’s Professional Development Chairman Kim Hassall says they are delighted to be able to grant the institute’s first CPP certification.

"This certification really highlights the depth of experience within the Industry and finally provides professional recognition for passenger transport professionals much like counterparts in the engineering, accounting, and finance professions."  

Duffy has recently been appointed full-time 2IC and Trainer for South East Tours and is also a Trainer and Assessor for Certificate III in Driving Operations

He is passionate about improving the safety and support of all drivers and their passengers, which motivated him to create the recently released Australian Bus & Coach Drivers’ Guide.

This guide collates as much succinct practical information with regards to getting a heavy vehicle licence to more advanced information for professional development of experienced drivers.

 "I am really passionate about improving the level of professionalism within the Australian passenger transport industry and this certification goes a great length in helping achieve this," says Duffy.
