Drivers Prefer Online Training — As Long as It's Good Training
Many fleets tell us they are skeptical about online training. They've tried other online training, and their drivers complained.
But you know the real problem: bad training is bad training, whether it's online or in the classroom. And making bad online training shorter doesn't fix the problem — it just wastes 5 minutes without teaching them anything.
What is Good Online Training?
Good online training respects the driver and their time — good training treats them like a professional. They tell us over and over they'd rather spend 20 minutes on good, in-depth training than 5 minutes being berated on a video by a retired trooper.

Chosen by Leading Fleets to End Safety Problems
More and more fleets — Ryder, Celadon, Landstar — are choosing ongoing training from PRO-TREAD. Assigning a course every month or every quarter tells drivers that safety is important. And that regular monthly training cuts CSA scores in half!

What Sets PRO-TREAD Apart? Mastery-Based Training
PRO-TREAD is designed so that in order to finish the training, drivers have to correctly answer questions every few minutes. If drivers don't answer the question right, they can't finish the lesson. This is know as "Mastery Training," and it's been used by NASA and the U.S. military for years.
Mastery-based training guarantees your drivers understand the material, and our driver records are bullet-proof evidence you've provided excellent training to your drivers. The next time you demo our competitors, press the fast-forward button. Or worse, try to click the wrong answer — you literally can't choose the wrong answer! That's not mastery-based training, and you can bet the plaintiff's attorney will hammer you for it.
Bullet-Proof Evidence for Risk Management
With PRO-TREAD, you get a secure online Driver Management System for free. This online database documents and stores the training taken by your drivers. This system provides a powerful risk management shield when required for compliance and for legal defense.
Major insurance companies endorse and promote PRO-TREAD. Some, such as Baldwin & Lyons, believe so much in the value of our training that they provide PRO-TREAD as a value-add to their clients.
