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.
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.
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.
Compliance regulations, whether they be the Department of Transportation (DOT) or the National Safety Code in Canada, are intended to hold drivers and companies to a standard of safe operating on the roads that all companies must follow. The consequences of falling out of compliance can be expensive, to say the least.
