APWA - New England Chapter Connects: Entry Level Driver Training & Your Organization

Event Date: 3/23/2023

Event Overview

Entry Level Driver Training & Your Organization

A New England Chapter Connects Series — Presented by the NEAPWA's Public Works Awareness and Education Committees

When: Thursday, March 23, 2023, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. via Zoom Hosted by T2 Center at UCONN

On February 7, 2022, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) instituted a new regulation, the Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT): a year later, there is much confusion regarding the requirements of the rule. Do you need to send applicants to a training school? Who needs ELDT and when? What are the training requirements of the rule?

Do you have questions regarding the ELDT rule? This session will focus on those requirements; and what you can do within your organization to get your drivers through the CDL licensing process.

Please join this virtual roundtable discussion; we will cover these questions and more. This session is geared towards people obtaining/upgrading a CDL license and for folks managing/training team members with CDL licenses.
