Learn about insurance brokerage Kunkel & Associates offering its customers access to CarriersEdge’s suite of more than 70 training courses.

Kunkel & Associates Inc, based in Dubuque IA, will now offer to its customers access to CarriersEdge’s suite of more than 70 training courses, as well as tools for efficiently and effectively managing a training program.

The insurance brokerage joins a growing list of trucking fleets, insurance companies and other brokerages in the United States and Canada partnering with CarriersEdge to provide drivers and their customers extra-mile service.

The CarriersEdge program includes full-length and refresher/remedial courses, in multiple languages, on safety and regulatory topics in trucking, from distracted driving to hours-of-service rules. Courses can be taken any time and any place drivers have access to a computer or mobile device and an Internet connection, giving them the flexibility to keep up-to-date with training while traveling or at home. Administrative tools make it easy to track not only who has taken what course, but also performance on quizzes to demonstrate retention of material.

The Kunkel/CarriersEdge program is set up as a subscription service, with one monthly fee providing unlimited use of all titles for all employees. Prices are based on the number of drivers who need access, with administrator accounts included at no charge.

Fleets that want to try out the service can begin with a smaller group and add more drivers later. Free online trials are also available.

Kunkel & Associates’ Transportation Insurance Division supports fleets of all sizes, and operations including refrigerated, dry van, flatbed, dump, towing, driveaway, hazardous materials, intermodal, less than truckload, tank and passenger carriers. The company works with more than 50 transportation insurance companies.
