The Center for Transportation Safety, a division of PHH Arval, has announced that one of its instructors, Carey Cox, has been recognized by the National Safety Council as the 2009 Defensive Driving Courses Instructor Trainer of the Year. In announcing the award at its Annual Safety Congress and Exposition in San Diego, the National Safety Council said that winners of its safe driving instruction awards “have gone above and beyond course training responsibilities to demonstrate leadership, dedication and a desire to impact the lives of students.”
A retired state trooper from Colorado, Cox has investigated thousands of crashes and now spends his time as an instructor for CTS, training everyone from teens to chief executive officers on safe driving principles and techniques. Since 2007, he has been an instructor for CTS, a provider of fleet risk management and training solutions, focusing on simulator, classroom, behind-the-wheel and mobile training programs for drivers of all classes of vehicles in the United States and Canada.
CTS provides training for new hires and employees who have been assigned company vehicles, as well as assisting truck fleets to recruit and train drivers to receive their commercial drivers licenses (CDLs). All of CTS’ skilled instructors have years of experience in fleet-related training, with certifications in highly specialized areas.
