Purpose and learning objectives
This course has two main purposes. First, the course explains why it is important for employers to know what driving skills and behaviours their employees have, identifying the benefits that knowledge provides and how it ties into addressing legal requirements.
The second purpose is to identify and explain the tools available to help employers determine what driving skills and behaviours employees already have, and the resources they can use to ensure each employee has the competencies they need to safely and successfully carry out driving assignments.
