A great presentation on driver safety training from Don Osterberg of Schneider National inspired many of the points here. Schneider National is one of our biggest clients and partners (you might check out the interview we did with their Director of Driver Training, Alan Weisinger).
- A 1% MPG improvement would save the trucking industry $709 million.
- A test group of Schneider National drivers improved their MPG 2.8 percent with a training focus on aggressive driving and fuel management that included both simulation training and computer-based training.
- Drivers with a better MPG have a lower crash risk than those with a worse MPG.

The last chart summarizes research we here at Instructional Technologies, Inc. did about the impact of training on safety and CSA scores. In short, the more training that drivers did per year, the lower that fleet’s CSA scores. The impact of using Pro-TREAD online training was most correlated with the Unsafe Driving BASIC of the CSA score.

We offer two types of plans:
- Pay-As-You-Go: Our per-lesson plan means you never pay for more than you use. You give us an idea of how many lessons you want to establish your per-lesson price. If you go over that amount, the overage stays at the same per-lesson price. If you consistently go over, you can expect a phone call from us to lower your per-lesson rate.
- Unlimited Per-Driver:
Your drivers can take as much training as they want, and you pay the same amount per-driver. You will not pay extra with turnover — new drivers replace departed drivers in the system. You commit to one year of training at that number of drivers.
