Canadian and U.S.-based companies with fleet operations in Canada can now take advantage of two new Safe & Smart training programs from J. J. Keller & Associates that provide driver and trainer training to meet Canada’s provincial/territorial and federal National Safety Code (NSC) standards.

“Fleets are looking for training that takes drivers beyond the baseline standards of Canada’s Mandatory Entry-Level Training (MELT),” said VP of Consulting and Training Services Dustin Kufahl. “Our Canada Driver Training Program provides them with the in-depth finishing training that enhances drivers’ safety skills, so they’ll be better equipped to prevent accidents and violations.”

J. J. Keller’s Safe & Smart Canada Driver Training Program delivers a complete curriculum of online courses, classroom instruction, closed-course range experience, and on-the-road training. According to Kufahl, the program is delivered by veteran trainers who are Canadian regulatory experts and able to speak in both English and Canadian French, allowing them to train in all provinces and territories, including Quebec.

“What makes our training so unique is that it’s tailored for the specific needs of each fleet,” added Kufahl. “That means not only can we provide training that’s specific to Canada, but we can also provide training that takes into account the types of vehicles drivers use, the types of customers they serve, the cargo they haul, the environment they drive in and more.”

For fleets that want internal staff trained to deliver the Safe & Smart Canada Driver Training Program to their drivers, J. J. Keller now also offers the Safe & Smart Canada Driver Trainer Certification Program. It provides instruction on all the driver training lessons, how to deliver that training effectively in the classroom and behind the wheel, as well as the training materials, including workbooks, online courses, PowerPoint presentations, and more. As part of the program, J. J. Keller’s experts are available year-round for training and regulatory guidance.
