InCab University, a college-accredited education program specifically built for the trucking industry, and DriverTech Fleet Management Systems have announced a strategic partnership to deliver InCab University’s remote education curriculum to long-haul drivers.

“For the first time in the history of the trucking industry, drivers have the opportunity to take accredited classes while on the road,” says Ken Mitchell, vice president of business development for InCab University. “The DriverTech DT4000 TruckPC will make InCab University’s classes infinitely more accessible and usable to drivers.”

Drivers enrolled in InCab University will be able to choose from a wide variety of coursework, including GED programs, accredited certificate programs and associate’s degree programs. All of the coursework will be presented by Chattanooga State University in collaboration with InCab University via an online classroom.

“The driver shortage is real, and will continue to challenge the transportation industry.” says Craig Fuller, chief executive officer of InCab University. “By improving the quality of life and expanding educational opportunities, InCab University will bring strong new entrants into the trucking industry. Furthermore, I believe the DriverTech TruckPC is an unequalled tool for receiving educational content. The training and educational opportunities presented by this arrangement are limitless.”

With a DT4000 TruckPC installed in their cabs, drivers can download lectures, presentations, movies, streaming video and television, and continue to use the system to stay in touch with their families and friends, says Jon Ricketts, director of InCab University. “InCab University has tailored the online learning experience for driver-students and created a very user-friendly and unique educational environment,” Ricketts says. “The DriverTech TruckPC is the perfect delivery platform.”

Mark Haslam, CEO and president of DriverTech, says his company is “pleased to be a part of a program that benefits the lives of long-haul drivers. This is another perfect example of the opportunities available to those who decide to move computing and wireless communications power into the cab. Accessing educational content is a wonderful use of the DT4000.”
