GroundCloud’s train-the-trainer program will ensure that you’ll have all the skills and materials you need to satisfy the Qualification Certification contracting standard and will help you develop a culture of safety that will keep your drivers safe and compliant, regardless of when they come on board.
Here’s how it works.
GroundCloud is a pioneer in the train-the-trainer model. Our in-person, in-depth train-the-trainer sessions are designed by a safety professional specifically to meet the needs of contracted service providers. Our professional safety experts will teach your Certified Trainer candidates how to train your drivers effectively in safe driving and parking. Classroom, road, and driving range training are all included.
Certified Trainer Program
Certified Trainer candidates attend our in-person 5-day train-the-trainer class, which will earn them the Certified Trainer designation and enable them to conduct all 2-day Driver Training classes for current drivers and 3-day Driver Training classes for new drivers.
Driver Training Program
As part of the contract standard, all drivers will be required to go through the Qualification Certification to be fully approved. This training will consist of:
- 2 to 3 days of classroom, road, and driving range training
- Unladen vehicles, branded or unbranded
- New drivers must also complete a road test in a vehicle classified by the size and weight. This will allow them to operate that size vehicle & smaller while performing logistic services.
When you sign up for Qualification Certification training with GroundCloud, you receive a “bonus class!” This free, additional course will include topics such as:
- Understanding the safety contract
- SRI & SRS review and how this impacts FXG’s CSA score
- Leadership skill set overview
- Creating and maintaining a corporate safety culture
The cost of GroundCloud’s Qualification Certification Class for Certified Trainer candidates is $2,750.
Disclaimer: If you register after Thursday for a Monday class, we cannot guarantee that your candidate will be vetted by FDX by the start of class. If your candidate is not approved, they will not be certified and you will be given a voucher to send another candidate to attend a future class. If your candidate is approved too late, they will be given a voucher to attend a future class.
You will also receive a liability release form to sign prior to class.
