Trucking companies, drivers and other trucking industry stakeholders will have the opportunity this summer to attend training sessions put on by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance about roadside inspections.
The first roadside inspection course will focus on driver requirements. It will be held June 11-15 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and will help teach attendees on regulatory driver-related roadside requirements and out-of-service conditions.
Specifically, the course will include information on regulatory definitions, intrastate vs. interstate operations, CDL and driver qualification requirements, hazmat, hours-of-service rules, annual inspections on commercial vehicles and the DataQs filing process.
The second course will be held July 16-20, also in Salt Lake City, and it will focus on regulatory vehicle-related roadside requirements and out-of-service roadside conditions, including 49 CFR 393, 396 and Appendix G.
CVSA says the course is designed to explain the regulations, Level I inspections and out-of-service criteria as it relates to the vehicle’s components.
“Our industry members have been asking for training on the CVSA Roadside Inspection Program for a long time and we’re now finally able to offer that valuable training,” said CVSA Director of Roadside Inspection Program Kerri Wirachowsky. “This is essentially the same training our inspectors receive, adjusted for industry.”
Those interested in attending do not have to be CVSA members to register. The cost of the courses is $995 for Class III Associate Members, or $1,195 for non-members for each five-day course. The class sizes are limited to 25 people. The deadline to register for the driver course is Friday, May 25, and the deadline for the vehicle course is Friday, June 29.
CVSA says the target audience is motor carriers, owner-operators, truck drivers, technicians, fleet managers and more.
