Council of Driver Trainers to discuss due diligence at its fall conference

Truck News

TORONTO, Ont. — The theme of this year’s Council of Driver Trainers’ annual educational conference is “due diligence.”

The conference will be held at the Ambassador Hotel and Conference Centre in Kingston, Ont., from Friday, Oct. 31 to Sunday, Nov 2. A line-up of professional speakers drawn from both Canada and the US is intended to inform participants about the legal ramifications related to a potential vehicle incident. The event is also designed to offer networking opportunities, as well as entertainment.

“Our information-packed agenda and growing list of major sponsors, provide our delegates with an exceptional opportunity to build contacts, gain knowledge, and have fun,” says the conference-organizing chair, Lori Van Opstal.

Participants will be invited to take part in a number of supporting seminars and enjoy a mock trial. A Saturday evening dance will feature a “jail-house rock” costumed event. All delegates are encouraged to dress in appropriate attire.

The annual educational conference brings together driver trainers and related professionals from the truck, bus, courier, insurance industries and other related businesses, to discuss the latest in driver training, staff development and risk management techniques. The Council’s goal is to achieve knowledge through training.

“In today’s uncertain business environment, the Council of Driver Trainers’ mission is certainly a necessity for all companies,” adds Opstal.
