MSC Webinar: Entry-Level Driver Training - What are the New Requirements and How Does This Impact My Company?

Please register for this recorded webinar. This webinar is open to MSC and ATA members.

Webinar Description:

On December 8, 2016, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued its Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) final rule, requiring more substantial training before a driver obtains a CDL or endorsements. The implementation of the ELDT final rule is February 7, 2022.

Many moving companies already offer basic training for employees and being an approved entry-level driver trainer could help attract new talent. If your company offers any type of on-the-job training or is looking to provide training to attract new drivers into your company, this online seminar will walk you through the following areas:

  • Overview of ELDT
  • Requirements to offer in-house training
  • How these new training requirements impact current training
