Instructional Technologies, Inc. (ITI) announced last week that it is joining the trucking industry’s efforts to save on fuel costs by offering its Pro-Tread Fuel Management lesson at no charge from June 1 through June 21. The offer is available to all professional drivers in the U.S. and Canada.
To access the free training, drivers can go to www.ProTread.com and follow the sign-in instructions. According to ITI, qualified drivers will be taking the training “within a minute of arriving at the website, and completion takes about half an hour.”
“We speak with drivers and with fleet owners constantly and all we’ve heard in the past few months is ‘fuel, fuel, fuel.’ We can’t lower the cost of diesel, unfortunately, but we can help drivers burn less of it,” noted Jim Voorhees, ITI CEO. “We hope that every driver on the road will find time between June 1 and June 21 to stop for half an hour, get on the Internet, and take this lesson. Together, we can greatly reduce our industry’s fuel costs.”
According to ITI, over 13,000 drivers at client fleets have already completed the half-hour lesson, which is in the process of being updated to include the latest equipment and new fuel-saving techniques and ideas. Current clients have also been offered the free lesson as of April 9, and will be invited to take the updated lesson again at no cost during June.
