Have you been wondering whether you should get your HR license or not? If so, we are going to help you make that decision today. For professional truck drivers, gaining your HR (or Heavy rigid) license is almost always a given. There is no way that one will be legally fit to drive commercial trucks (or any type of heavy-duty vehicle) unless they have the certifications required to do so. However, the decision then becomes a little bit harder to make for those who have no intention of becoming professional truck drivers at any time in the future, but who are looking to join the transportation sector.
If you’re a regular Joe who’s planning on joining and following a career path that’s somewhere inside the transportation industry (but who has no intention of becoming a professional truck driver), you will most likely believe that getting an HR license is a waste of time. However, for most non-professional truck drivers who do get their licenses, they’ll attest to the fact that this is not the case. In this blog, we are going to help you determine whether it would be worth it to get your HR license by talking about some of the key benefits associated with having an HR license.
So let’s get started…
Upskilling Your CV
Aside from becoming a professional truck driver, there are many other career opportunities that circle the transportation sector. These include jobs as maintenance workers, automotive service technicians, mechanics and repair workers. Now an HR license may not initially seem very important for these tasks. However, when it comes to rising through the ranks and gaining promotions that will take you all the way up to the administrative levels, having a valid license will certainly be a CV boost. An active HR license will allow you to diversify and upskill your professional portfolio, which will make you a much more appealing candidate for jobs higher up in the food chain.
Sometimes, things may not always go as you’d wanted them to when it comes to your career. As such, in moments like these, it’s always good to have a safety net when it comes to potential job opportunities. Obtaining your HR license will provide you with that safety net. Whilst you may have planned to take another role in the transportation industry, having a fallback career that’s as freeing and lucrative as truck driving could never be a bad idea.
