NOVI, Mich. - Dec. 21, 2021 – This month Mastery Training Services released four new online training courses to help those in the trucking industry comply with Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations and keep drivers safe on the roadways. These courses cover defensive driving, DOT Hours of Service and DOT Cargo Securement Standard regulations.
The first course, “Driving Defensively For CDL/Large Vehicle Drivers: The Basics,” introduces CDL/large vehicle drivers to defensive driving techniques. It covers the mental aspects of defensive driving, trip preparedness, use of headlights, negotiating curbs and downgrades, turns and intersections, and other techniques of benefit.
The follow-up course, “Driving Defensively For CDL/Large Vehicle Drivers: Handling Adverse Conditions,” expands on the basics with techniques for driving defensively in adverse conditions. This course spotlights the key challenges truckers face on the road from bad weather and blowouts to distracted drivers, pedestrians, and work zones. This course demonstrates how defensive driving prepares drivers for every situation and how this helps prevent accidents and saves lives.
“DOT Hours Of Service” educates viewers about the importance of tracking daily and weekly driving limits to comply with DOT requirements. This course demonstrates how to manage a driving log. The course covers 14-hour duty and 11-hour driving limits, 60-hour/7-day and 70-hour/8-day limits, and the use of the Sleeper Berth Provision.
