CarriersEdge, providers of online safety and compliance training tools for transportation, has a new dedicated mobile training app for truck drivers. With the app, drivers at trucking companies that subscribe to CarriersEdge can access the company’s library of orientation and refresher courses and knowledge tests, as well as custom content.
“Having a dedicated mobile app for driver training makes a lot of sense,” said Jane Jazrawy, CEO at CarriersEdge. “There are generic productivity apps that can be used to run basic training programs, but until now there hasn’t been anything dedicated exclusively to driver training and we felt that needed to change.”
CarriersEdge offers courses on Defensive Driving, Winter Driving, HOS & Logbooks (US & Canada), Practical Cargo Securement, Hazardous Materials, CSA, Fire Safety, Drug and Alcohol, Recognizing & Preventing Fatigue, Maximizing Fuel Efficiency and more.
Features of the CarriersEdge mobile app include push notifications so fleets can notify drivers of new training assignments or when deadlines for completing courses are approaching. The app simplifies access for drivers, and once the app is installed drivers stay logged in and don’t have to remember a password. They can resume training by tapping an icon.
The CarriersEdge mobile app is available on Google Play and at the Apple App Store for IOS and Android devices.
