We looked at videos, but they weren't very effective. Drivers would come in and watch a video on a specific topic, but they would not engage. They would be on their phone texting, or dozing off. We would have to bring someone in the room to just monitor, to ensure they were paying attention. For a small company, that's not a good use of our time. And worse yet, we weren't sure what information the drivers were retaining.
At CarriersEdge we're focused on providing the best possible training experience for the trucking industry.
If you're looking for something short and shallow to check a box for your insurance company, and not worried about education quality, you'll hate us. On the other hand, if you're committed to having the safest, most reliable drivers on the road, and want to provide the most indepth, comprehensive safety training program available, we can help.
The CarriersEdge online driver training system was designed specifically for the trucking industry. We understand drivers, we understand fleets, and we know what works in the world of risk management.
Our courses are deeply researched, regularly updated, and put into context for drivers. More than just a list of rules that drivers need to follow, we dig into the 'why' and 'how', giving drivers background and context that leads to successful outcomes. And at the end, our objectives-based testing confirms that they know the content as well as they should.
As one long time customer put it, “your tests are challenging but fair; if a driver can pass your test they definitely know their stuff”.
