Change Their Behaviors;
Change the Results
If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’ve got. It’s trite, but true. Merely telling drivers to do their job “safer” doesn’t work. Training is the way you change the behaviors that lead to the safer results you want.
Online training lets your drivers log into their assigned courses anywhere there’s an internet connection. It works on computers, laptops or mobile devices — even some on-board devices. Courses are in-depth, providing the highest-quality training in the trucking industry.
Training Improves All Areas of Operations
The amazing thing about training is how it improves more than just safety. Fleets report:
- Fewer crashes
- Increase in MPG
- Longer equipment life
- Fewer HOS violations
- Reduced driver turnover
- Fewer citations
- Culture of personal responsibility
Online Training: Faster and More Frequent
With online training, you save money by not bringing drivers back to headquarters on their day off for classroom training. You’re not paying a trainer or buying expensive DVDs. Online training gives you active training on the drivers’ time and on their schedule. Courses are split into short segments, and they never have to go back to the start. Finally, since each course is about 25 minutes total, you can easily assign courses and keep safety a priority.
Huge Library of Specific Courses
You can pick from over 100 different courses, all up-to-date. Many different types of vehicles and trailers are covered, including box trucks, tankers, flatbeds, forklifts, and even passenger cars. You can assign training to an individual, to a group, or company-wide. Courses cover:
- CSA BASICs
- Safe driving
- HOS and logbooks
- Pre-trip inspections
- Health and wellness
- Fuel efficiency
- Forklift, warehouse, and safe lifting
Tailor and Track Assignments to Re-mediate DOT Issues
Online training meets the standard if you must re-mediate an issue through training due to a DOT audit. You’ll find several courses you can assign that show you’re training your fleet. You’ll have records of the training completed and you can print certificates for driver files as well. All training has quizzes — a driver must show they understand the basics before they move onto the more advanced topics.
Custom Training Production Available
If you have your own training videos or content, they can be added to the online system. Or you can use Instructional Technologies’ production services to create new courses specific to your fleet’s needs. This lets you track completions and keep all training in one place.
Training that Changes the Mind and the Heart
Drivers tell us over and over that they actually get something out of online training. Unlike most other training, which is seen as a burden, these courses treat drivers with respect and professionalism. The information is relevant to their life on the road, which gives them safer and smarter ways to approach the job.
