Thomson Learning Career and Professional Group has published “Longer Combination Vehicle (LCV) Regulations Training,” a training manual for delivering information required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for operators of double and triple combination units.

Developed as a down-to-earth instructional guide, the manual is designed to communicate the essential information and distinct operating characteristics concerning longer combination vehicles and the rules and training requirements necessary for truck drivers, fleet managers and those responsible for their training. Coverage details the requirements issued by FMCSA in regulation 49CFR parts 380 and 391: Topics include basic and advanced operations, double and triple combination units, nondriving activities, safe operating practices and more. This book serves as both a training guide and reference for drivers, managers, dispatchers, maintenance personnel and trainers alike.

“LCV Regulations Training” also provides an understanding of cargo, facility and driver security. The instructor’s guide will assist those responsible for training on how to best deliver available LCV material, which includes an end-of-course test and printable certificate of completion. “Cargo theft is at an all-time high, with estimates running into the tens of billions of dollars every year,” says Dave Daniels, author. ” ‘LCV Regulations Training’ addresses some common-sense methodologies as well as various new technologies in order to help reduce exposure to cargo loss.”

“Longer Combination Vehicle (LCV) Regulations Training” also includes investigative procedures for incidents involving vehicles on the road or incidents at the facility, guiding readers through the establishment of a meaningful risk management program. The guide also addresses hazardous material transport, including what is needed for transportation of hazardous materials, new driver requirements and what to do when an accident involving hazardous materials occurs.
