Driver training available via smartphones and tablets

Pro-Tread driver training from Instructional Technologies is now available on smartphones and tablets in addition to computers and onboard devices from PeopleNet, Omnitracs and Rand McNally.

“Whether a fleet issues company-owned mobile devices, or expects drivers to bring their own device, smartphones and tablets have been adopted faster than anyone could have guessed,” said Jim Voorhees, president and CEO of Instructional Technologies, Inc. “And the most important asset a fleet has is its drivers’ time. By letting drivers take lessons on mobile devices at a time that's convenient to them, a fleet is spared the expense of classrooms, traveling training personnel, and non-driving hours for drivers. Drivers appreciate the flexibility to get the training done when and where it makes the most sense for them.”

Pro-Tread Mobile will include the company’s top 20 lessons, Voorhees said, including CSA courses, hours-of-service, speed management, Hazmat loading and placarding.
