Two new courses are now available in the Ignite e-Learning subscription: 2021 Fuel Efficiency and 2021 Hours of Service (Canadian Regulations).


In both cases:

1. The course names begin with 2021 so that you can tell which are the new ones.

2. There are multiple modules. The full course can be taken as a whole, or as separate modules. Hours of Service Canada has four separate modules and Fuel Efficiency has two. 

3. These new courses replace old versions that will be left online until May 31st, 2021. Anyone in progress with these courses should finish them before that time.

The French translation of HOS will be available approximately beginning to mid-June. 

The French version of Fuel Efficiency will be available approximately end of June.

TCA Webinar: If You’re Not Already Using Social Media to Retain & Recruit Drivers, You Should Be

As our industry fights a losing battle against an aging workforce, competitive pay scales, demanding work and the unprecedented challenges brought on by COVID-19, carriers are actively seeking creative ways to retain and recruit new drivers.

The trick? Gaining drivers’ attention before other carriers do, by whatever means possible. While some companies are offering sign-on bonuses, retention bonuses, higher pay and more home time, the trick seems to be getting the message out there to the drivers that are actually looking for work. One way to do this is via the power of social media.

New Hours of Service Canada Course

The new 2021 Hours of Service: Canadian Regulations course has been released today, along with four updated refresher modules.

Both the current version of the course and the 2021 version will be available for anyone still going through it, and we will be removing the old version at the beginning of June when the new ELD mandate goes into effect.

Note: The course does not cover specific instructions on how to use an ELD (usually available from the manufacturer). It does explain how the regulations have changed to accommodate ELDs (with information about ELD mandatory items and how to handle malfunctions, for example).

The French translation of the course will be available approximately beginning to mid-June.

HOW MUCH ARE YOU WILLING TO RISK?

The true cost of an accident can be staggering. Besides direct costs, indirect costs like poor publicity, lost clients and lost productivity can take a toll. The average cost for a truck accident is $148,279, not including litigation. It would take an additional revenue of $7,413,950 to pay the accident costs, assuming an average profit margin of 2%. A study of over one million lines of data on truck violations discovered that over 28,000 trucking companies, representing over 200,000 trucks, operated with safety violations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association’s (FMSCA) settlement for non-compliance was $36,262,097 in 2014 with an average fine of over $7,000 per case.
