Since FMCSA’s changes to the Compliance, Safety, Accountability initiative took effect in December 2012, most CSA training now contains critical inaccuracies.
Fleet professionals can solve this problem with CSA: Know the BASICs — the new driver training program from J. J. Keller & Associates Inc. that reflects those changes.
J. J. Keller’s CSA: Know the BASICs features real-life scenarios and a state-of-the-art curriculum to help drivers understand:
• The four components of CSA,
• The seven BASICs in the SMS—including those that have changed,
• The FMCSA interventions and their consequences,
• How their performance affects them and their company, and
• Ways to prevent “high value” violations.
Components of the training program include a closed-captioned DVD video, discussion guide, trainer tools CD-ROM with ready-to-use materials (including a PowerPoint presentation), CSA special report, CSA overview poster, and 11 driver handbooks (additional handbooks available separately).
In addition to the DVD format, CSA: Know the BASICs is also available as a Pay Per View video and will soon be available in two self-paced formats—interactive online training (for use anywhere with an Internet connection) and interactive CD-ROM training (no Internet connection needed). Each format features the same content, enabling trainers to provide consistent information company-wide while appealing to a variety of adult learning styles.
