Rich Wilson selected for FMCSA ELDTAC “Core Curriculum”
Congratulations to Richard Wilson, Regulation and Compliance Representative for North American Trucking Alerts Advisory Council.
Richard has been selected by ELDTAC to the “Core Curriculum” Working Group of the FMCSA Entry-Level Driver Training Advisory Committee (ELDTAC).
The purpose of ELDTAC is to Establish a nationalized standard for entry-level driver training.
Rich is also the President and CEO of TCRG LLC – Transportation Compliance Resources Group.
Core Curriculum Working group
Scope as agreed in first meeting:
Each curriculum work group will consider the following issues:
A. What are the necessary skill sets for entry-level drivers of different CMVs?
B. Performance-based vs. hours-based requirements. For performance-based requirements, what is the standard tested to and how is performance tested?
C. Should this rule prescribe ELDT requirements for the various commercial driver’s license (CDL) endorsements?
D. How ELDT requirements interact with CDL permitting process.
E. Applicability to veterans exiting military service.
Proposed initial inquiry:
What are the high-level topics (and main sub-topics) now covered in the curricula used by (a) carriers offering pre-CDL training, and (b) CVTA/NAPFTDS/PTDI, respectively, currently? If there are important differences among different training curricula, please indicate the range of options in brackets.
Answers should be divided into the following headings:
Class A Class B
BTW Skills BTW Skills
What do we know about how many hours are currently devoted to these categories of instruction by various categories of pre-CDL training providers?
What do we know about the role of simulators/skid pads in current programs, the role of supervised driving, etc.?
This week, Rich will be gathering information to help supply feedback to the ELDTAC Working group. At this time he is taking suggestions from all those concerned regarding CDL Training Standards. Suggestions will be based on the Above
Core Curriculum Working group Outline.
