Instructional Technologies Inc. (ITI), which provides training systems and content, released a new Pro-Tread Mobile App. The announcement was made during the annual Safety, Security, and Human Resources National Conference and Exhibition of the ATA Safety Management Council (SMC).
“With the Pro-Tread Mobile App, carriers are able to give drivers options for when, where and how to complete training,” said Aaron Purvis, chief technology officer of ITI. “Custom, compulsory and company specific training from ITI can be completed on mobile devices or on a computer.”
Available through the Apple App store and Google Play for Android, the Pro-Tread Mobile App uses the same login used for Pro-Tread online training, access to assigned courses and available libraries.
The Pro-Tread Mobile App is included free with Pro-Tread accounts that use the Sentix platform, ITI’s recently introduced Learning Management System (LMS) for scheduling, tracking, verifying and managing training. Centralized controls in Sentix apply simultaneously to the Mobile App and Pro-Tread for:
- Integration with management-approved app lists and on pre-configured mobile devices
- Lesson assignments for specific users or open access to all lesson content
- Recording lesson starts, progress and completion to continue lessons from the same point they left off
- Switching between online and mobile devices without losing their place in the lesson
ITI uses a mastery learning training strategy, an instructional method by which the student must ‘master’ each subject before moving to the next.
