CarriersEdge updates training regime with enhanced programs

MARKHAM, Ont. — CarriersEdge is set to provide a couple of new offerings to bolster driver online training.

The provider of online driver improvement systems, has updated the latest version of its flagship driver development system — CarriersEdge 2.5. Along with new content, version 2.5 also features more than 50 different customer-requested system enhancements.

New courses include expanded Defensive Driving and Transportation of Dangerous Goods programs. New management features include a significantly more powerful compliance management system, automated training program development and delivery, and extended reporting tools.

“Version 2.5 is our biggest release ever,” noted Mark Murrell, president of CarriersEdge. “With the new content, features, and performance improvements, our customers can now improve the overall quality of their drivers more efficiently than ever before.”

As well, CarriersEdge and Techni-Com have jointly-developed the new Practical Vehicle Inspection online training course.

Designed as a companion to the Practical Vehicle Inspection handbook, the online course uses real-world scenarios and exercises to illustrate the latest National Safety Code regulations. Separate programs for tractor-trailers and straight trucks, along with mini-course refreshers, allow fleets to tailor the content to best suit their individual needs.

“Techni-Com has some of the finest content in the industry, and it lends itself very nicely to online delivery,” added Murrell. “This course is a great addition to our library.”

CarriersEdge subscription customers will automatically receive version 2.5 and Practical Vehicle Inspection as part of their subscription.
