MARKHAM, Ont. — CarriersEdge has announced the release of a new vehicle inspection online training course as well as its upgraded online driver improvement system.
The company has partnered with Techni-Com, a provider of commercial vehicle safety and compliance materials, to produce the online Practical Vehicle Inspection training course. The course is designed to accompany the Practical Vehicle Inspection handbook. The online course uses real-world scenarios and exercises to convey National Safety Code regulations, the companies announced.
Separate programs are available for tractor-trailers and straight trucks, allowing fleets to customize the content to suit their needs.
“CarriersEdge has done a great job with this course,” said Rolf VanderZwaag, president of Techni-Com. “They’ve created a program that’s clear, easy to use, and really brings the content to life.”
“Techni-Com has some of the finest content in the industry, and it lends itself very nicely to online delivery,” added Mark Murrell, president of CarriersEdge. “This course is a great addition to our library.”
CarriersEdge subscribers will automatically receive the course as part of their subscription service, the company has announced.
Meanwhile, CarriesEdge has also launched an enhanced version of its driver improvement systems, CarriersEdge 2.5. The new system features updated content and more than 50 new customer-requested enhancements, according to the company. New features include a more powerful compliance management system, automated training program development and delivery and extended reporting tools.
“Version 2.5 is our biggest release ever,” said Mark Murrell. “With the new content, features, and performance improvements, our customers can now improve the overall quality of their drivers more efficiently than ever before.”
