Instructional Technologies Inc., providers of training solutions for the transportation industry, announced three new lessons as part of its Pro-Tread library of online training courses.
“With our newest courses on Intermodal Equipment Inspections, Rear End Collision Avoidance - Medium Duty Truck, and Transporting Lithium Batteries, we are providing valuable training on topics that will improve safety and compliance for fleets and their drivers,” said Laura McMillan, vice president of training development for ITI, noting that ITI is adding a steady stream of new courses, especially for the medium-duty market.
The new courses being offered by ITI as part of Pro-Tread, which blend timely and valuable information with examples of real-world scenarios, include:
- Intermodal Equipment Inspections covers crucial areas during the inspection process for intermodal containers and chassis to ensure safety during transit. The training shows the viewer the details needed from a close-up perspective to perform a thorough and effective inspection.
- Rear-End Collision Avoidance - Medium Duty Truck focuses on techniques for avoiding rear-end collisions, because most truck/automobile accidents involve the car getting hit from behind. The training uses the concept of the Space Cushion for establishing a safe following distance based on five key factors and delivers the key messages using graphical representations that make it easy to comprehend the importance of safe distance.
- Transporting Lithium Batteries provides information for shippers about safety precautions, packaging and labeling requirements, and documents required for compliance with applicable U.S. and international regulations.
All three training courses are available immediately from the Pro-Tread library. The lessons can be taken from any connected device, including iOS and Android. As part of the Pro-Tread family, they can be assigned and tracked automatically by fleet managers for ease of recordkeeping and compliance.
