Platform Science offers in-cab driver education via Luma

March 3, 2023
Platform Science users will be able to use the Luma app for driver education for topics including safety, compliance, and FMCSA-approved entry-level driver training. The courses are customizable for fleets of all sizes.

Telematics provider Platform Science has partnered with driver education company Luma Brighter Learning to offer its courses to truckers using Platform Science’s app catalog.

"We understand drivers' time is extremely valuable and Luma Brighter Learning's training programs make it easier for them to complete instructional programs directly from the cab when they are off the road," stated Emilie Campbell, director of partner management at Platform Science, in a press release. "As we continue to build our app catalog, we are providing fleet operators with the tools needed to improve the driver experience and increase efficiencies. Luma's unique approach to training accomplishes both of those goals."

Luma’s courses focus on improving driver safety, compliance, and communication through what the company calls on-demand “micro-lessons.” The company’s catalog includes an FMCSA-approved entry-level driver training (ELDT) program in 16 languages that offer practice exams. Content also includes orientation, driver safety training, human resources and employee training, last-mile delivery, warehouse safety, and OSHA standards, as well as content for Canadian fleets—all of which is customizable, according to Luma’s website.

"Luma Brighter Learning is pleased to partner with Platform Science to offer enhanced and easily accessible training to drivers from their cab," said Dr. Gina Anderson, Luma co-founder and CEO. "Effective learning is not about the number of hours spent training employees. What is important is training quality and frequency. This partnership further allows drivers to take control of their learning, maximizing their time while experiencing meaningful lessons and authentic live coaching sessions that make a measurable difference in safety outcomes."
