One of CarriersEdge’s most popular online courses for keeping truck drivers safe is now available in Spanish. The Defensive Driving training suite includes a full two-hour course covering traffic, road and weather challenges that truck drivers face every day, as well as seven refresher modules.

The original course and new Spanish-language versions were developed by CarriersEdge. As with other courses in the CarriersEdge library, the Defensive Driving training modules use animation, video demonstrations, real-world scenarios and interactivity to reinforce concepts presented, and quizzes and tests to give drivers immediate feedback on how well they understand the material.

The Defensive Driving course covers basics as well as situations such as turns and curves, backing up, intersections and lane changes. It also helps drivers understand the relationship between speed and space among vehicles on the road.

CarriersEdge already offers training in hours-of-service rules, including a full course and four modules, in Spanish. It is working on a Spanish-language version of its vehicle-inspection training. Spanish-language courses are included in a CarriersEdge subscription, or can be purchased individually.

The company has also developed courses in French and Punjabi. All English-language course instructional tools are included in those courses to provide a consistent education experience across the fleet.
