Vancouver, Washington – May 08, 2019 -- Instructional Technologies Inc. (ITI), providers of training solutions for the transportation industry, today announced member pricing for On Ramp™ to members of the Commercial Vehicle Training Association (CVTA). On Ramp provides both the required training content and mandatory testing needed for the federal Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) standards that go into effect starting in February 2020.
In partnership with CVTA, members receive a discounted rate for students using On Ramp, and discounted Professional Services assistance to help align their program with the upcoming regulation.
“With the upcoming change in regulations we’re doing everything possible to help CDL schools meet the ELDT requirement and attract more new drivers for our industry,” said Laura McMillan, VP of Training Development of Instructional Technologies. “Partnering with CVTA allows us to increase awareness of the change and provide the tools CDL schools need before the regulation changes.”
“The ELDT regulation is going to require all training providers to certify that they ensure they are teaching a curriculum that meets the requirements," said Don Lefeve, president of CVTA. "Training providers who use our curriculum from providers like ITI are reducing their risk of being non-compliant.”
On Ramp meets mandatory theory training requirements in 31 core curriculum areas required under the new standards, eliminating the need to create new ELDT-compliant content. All of the online courses are also evaluated on a regular basis and updated based on new rules and requirements. ITI served in an advisory capacity on the new ELDT curriculum and remains involved with developing and implementing the program.
After students complete online On Ramp courses, instructors can use a Group Training Module to lead in-class discussions about real world situations, answer individual questions, and cement learning points.
In addition to providing ELDT-compliant training, ITI’s Sentix ELDT enables CDL schools to test student proficiency by using either built-in mastery-based testing or in a classroom setting with tests automatically assigned afterward. The Sentix LMS records the assessment score, and shares scores with the upcoming federal Training Provider Registry to meet the recordkeeping requirements of the ELDT mandate.
Through ITI’s Professional Services team, ITI can help assess a fleet’s or CDL school’s overall ELDT readiness and provide a transition plan for school trainers.
