driver-training-2Instructional Technologies, Inc. (ITI) announced that more than 7 million Pro-TREAD lessons have been completed in the transportation industry.

James Ekins, a driver for Ryder System, unknowingly completed the seven millionth lesson in January, 2015, titled Avoiding Fixed Objects.

“Drivers and warehouse employees at Ryder complete approximately 200,000 hours of safety training collectively using Pro-TREAD each year,” said Sanford Hodes, a senior vice presidenet at Ryder responsible for safety, health and security. “Instructional Technologies is an invaluable business partner, providing training solutions that are fresh, interactive and designed to keep safety top of mind for our employees.”

ITI said it took 311 days to go from 6 million Pro-TREAD lessons watched to 7 million, which is an average of 3,215 lessons a day and just shy of 100,000 lessons per month.

“Everything we do revolves around making it easier for drivers to get great training,” said Dr. Jim Voorhees, president and CEO of ITI. “That’s why we introduced online training in 2005. It’s why we made all of our training available on mobile devices. It’s why we offer flexible pricing to fit the needs of any fleet.”

Lessons are split into short sections, Voorhees said, and drivers never lose their place. “And we offer more than 100 lessons on a wide variety of topics so the training is always relevant.”
