CALEDONIA, Ont. — Kim Richardson Transportation Specialists (KRTS) and CarriersEdge have teamed up to develop a new online training program for entry-level drivers and carriers.
The program, dubbed the KRTS Online Training Highway, will be introduced Sept. 1. It will be released in two models: the first for entry-level drivers, and the second will be geared towards individuals and companies seeking online certification.
“We’re no stranger to online training when it comes to the transportation industry,” said KRTS president, Kim Richardson. “We were the first educational facility in our industry to offer online training. CarriersEdge was our partner then and we are excited for our customers and the industry to take our relationship to a new level. We believe we will offer the best solution and supply the best service and price in the industry.”
The program will include a full suite of courses and options. KRTS corporate customers will receive discounts on the training, while other fleets and companies will be offered a limited time enrollment deal.
“Kim Richardson and his team were one of the first companies we did business with when we entered the transportation sector,” said Mark Murrell, president of CarriersEdge. “They have a long history of doing things the right way and they have an outstanding reputation for offering quality educational programs. We at CarriersEdge benefit from aligning with companies and organizations like KRTS.”
The two companies say the new program will provide one of the largest growing libraries of online courses.
“When we were doing our research and development and considering getting into the online space, what we found is there are a number of organizations and companies who offer online training to their customers and membership, but training and education is not their core business. At KRTS training is what we do every day. We’re in tune with the pulse of education in transportation and our team has been doing it really well since 1989,” Richardson added.
