CarriersEdge Expands Online Training System

MARKHAM, ON – CarriersEdge has made several enhancements to its online driver training system, offering fleets greater ability to customize and consolidate their training programs. 

In addition to the core library of online safety training courses, customers now have additional options for adding their own content into their personalized training environments.

Powerpoint presentations, videos, and several other file types can be uploaded directly into the system where they’ll be automatically converted to web format and added to the list of titles available for drivers.

New event management functions provide the ability to schedule and track classroom training activities alongside online content, according to the company. In-person events such as orientation, driver meetings, and coaching sessions can be scheduled for individuals or groups, with management approval options, attendance tracking after each event, and waiting list capabilities as well.

The company also announced the release of new titles in its “Practical Cargo Securement” series. Based on the industry standard handbook of the same name, the new titles detail securement requirements for metal coils in cargo vans or on flatbeds.

“With these new modules, we now have more than a dozen distinct titles based on the Practical Cargo Securement handbook”, said Mark Murrell, vice president of sales and marketing. “That handbook is the gold standard in cargo securement for a reason, it’s comprehensive, clear, and easy to use, and we’re very proud to be the exclusive provider of online courses based on its content.”

CarriersEdge subscriptions customers automatically receive all new course modules and system features as part of their subscription. Courses can also be purchased individually through CarriersEdge partners across the country.
