After completing the further training measures, the professional driver receives a so-called C95 code, which is entered in the driver's license, or the individual member states receive their own C95 ID card. The C95 trainer project will develop a training concept for the training and further education of C95 trainers and a standardized online selection process for C95 trainers in order to ensure high-quality training for truck drivers.

The same applies to the obligatory further training of the trainers. This leads to very different quality levels in the training of professional drivers in the individual Member States.
