ITI and PRO-TREAD have been working with bulk fleets and fleets handling hazmat loads for more than 25 years. Your fleet has specialized training needs, and we know how to help meet them.
Tanker and hazmat drivers are a cut above. They’ve got more training and more knowledge, and usually more experience. So the safety and hazmat training you provide them needs to rise to a higher level. It needs to be specific to their equipment, their loads, and/or their clients.
For tanker and hazmat fleets, most training should be highly specific. Drivers need to understand your fleet's unique equipment, loads, regulations, and operating procedures.
In addition to providing great off-the-shelf training on topics like defensive driving, ITI makes it easy to get your training into our online system — just email the content to us, and we do all the heavy lifting.
CDL Hazmat endorsements aren't something to mess around with. The fines are steep. And if you've got a dedicated route with hazmat and you're down one CDL driver due to a paperwork snafu, it's a tough one to explain to your client and the boss. ITI offers the hazmat truck driver training needed, and the Sentix LMS that makes it simple to stay ahead of the expiration. With Sentix Pro, you can automatically reschedule hazmat driver training before their next renewal.
ITI’s hazmat truck driver training courses are a premium addition to the PRO-TREAD heavy duty truck training library. You can purchase them for the segment of your fleet that needs them.
If your fleet also hauls tankers, ITI offers training to help keep drivers sharp. While most PRO-TREAD heavy duty courses deal with everyday issues faced on the road, the premium tanker training covers three important topics that are specific to tankers.
It’s one thing to tell a driver about a new rule, but how do you prove they heard it?
ITI lets you add quizzes throughout the content to ensure they understand.
We recommend you follow the mastery-based training method used through PRO-TREAD. To finish, they must get answers correct — if they get it wrong, the system sends them back to view that section again. (You’ll be amazed how quickly drivers learn they need to pay attention.)
You can also use e-signatures or check-boxes that certify they’ve read/viewed something.
The U.S. Dept. of Transportation imposes fines up to $50,000 per day for civil violations in hazardous materials shipping. And those fines can climb up to $100,000 if the violation results in personal injury or property damage.
That said, most fines for hazmat involve paperwork and CDL drivers not knowing their loads have hazardous materials. A little bit of hazmat truck driver training can go a long way, even for CDL drivers who don’t have their hazmat endorsement.
