The American Trucking Associations and Codega on Tuesday, Dec. 9, announced the introduction of the ProTraining Safety Series 1 program to educate truck drivers, particularly new and younger professionals, about basic truck safety concepts, rules and practices.
The series of four animated training videos and associated learning materials are designed to keep viewers engaged and thinking while reinforcing critical safety and compliance practices. The information is thorough, easy to digest and immediately applicable to drivers’ day-to-day activities; according to ATA and Codega; the videos use the latest in educational animation technology, along with accompanying comprehensive workbooks and quizzes to measure comprehension and progress.
“We are pleased to be teaming with Codega to develop this series of safety videos,” says Bill Graves, ATA president and chief executive officer. “Safety is a top priority of our industry, and ATA members and staff have worked hard to make our nation’s roads safer for everyone. The experts at Codega have an extensive knowledge of how accidents occur and what can be done to prevent them. They bring this expertise to the ProTraining Safety Series 1.”
The ATA-Codega ProTraining Safety Series 1 is part of ATA Business Solutions, a line of information products, business tools, services, training programs and conferences specifically designed to address the critical issues affecting trucking-related companies.
“ATA and Codega are bringing a substantially different product to an industry ready for innovation,” says Robert Swint, CEO of Houston-based Codega. “The days of education through talking heads and rote speech are gone. In our media-rich world, learners expect the best in animation, graphics, video and sound. Our training moves beyond entertainment to truly engage our audiences in a manner that fosters learning and promotes safety as a top priority.”
