Vertical Alliance Group Inc., a provider of online safety training and consultation for the trucking and transportation industries, is introducing a new training series “Fuel Efficiency For the Professional Driver,” a series of short, pointed reminder videos designed to keep drivers, dispatchers and maintenance personnel mindful of techniques and practices they all can employ that will result in increased fuel economy.
Launching on VAG’s proprietary Infinit-i Learning Management System (www.infinit-i.net), a paperless Web-based training and information management solution, companies will begin the fuel efficiency training with an internally crafted expectation module that explains why the company is implementing the training program, as well as what is expected of each department. After viewing this initial informational piece, employees will watch the “4 Part-QuickStart,” four modules that will provide an overview of the
training program and the foundation around which subsequent modules will teach.
” ‘Fuel Efficiency for the Professional Driver’ was developed in conjunction with industry experts, but the secret to success for our clients has been the real down-to-earth method with which we communicate to drivers … this is not your typical, corporate ‘ivory tower’ approach,” says Jay Wommack, president and chief executive officer of VAG. “Clients utilizing our Infinit-i solution to train drivers and other staff around fuel-saving techniques with our existing materials are already posting some impressive miles-per-gallon improvements with this series that specifically targets fuel economy, and concerned companies can also take their fuel savings to the next level.”
VAG says its staff has simplified the process and worked out all of the details so companies can be running the fuel program in less than 48 hours. For more information, call Teresa Hindsman, VAG client service director, at 903-792-3866 ext. 103 or e-mail
