CarriersEdge, provider of online safety and compliance training tools for the North American transportation industry, announced a new mobile training app for truck drivers.
This dedicated online training app can be used to access the company’s complete library of orientation and refresher courses and knowledge tests, as well as custom content from trucking companies.
CarriersEdge offers a range of courses: Defensive Driving, Winter Driving, HOS & Logbooks (US and Canada), Practical Cargo Securement, Hazardous Materials, CSA, Fire Safety, Drug and Alcohol, Recognizing & Preventing Fatigue, and Maximizing Fuel Efficiency.
Features of the CarriersEdge mobile app include push notifications so fleets can notify drivers of new training assignments or when deadlines for completing courses are approaching. The app also simplifies access for drivers. Once the app is installed, drivers stay logged in and don’t have to remember a password. Resuming training is as simple as tapping an icon.
“A common challenge for fleets is that they don’t have personal email addresses for drivers and using satellite communications only works if the driver is in the vehicle,” said Jane Jazrawy, CarriersEdge chief executive officer. “That means there’s no easy way to send messages to drivers when they’ve been assigned training, need to renew expiring courses, or have deadlines approaching. With the CarriersEdge mobile app, that is all done directly on the device. For drivers it’s personal, more timely, and a better way to stay on top of things.”
The CarriersEdge mobile app is available on Google Play and at the Apple App Store for IOS and Android devices.
