Safety Training

Award-Winning Safety Training

saftey-training

Real pros know the value of training.  In your line of work, it can literally save your life, not to mention your ability to qualify for jobs and contracts.  Shippers don’t like accidents or the drivers who get into them.  When you’re out of commission, you can’t earn commissions.

A4DD makes training easy and interesting, with interactive online courses available 24/7 at a cost way below market.  With A4DD you pay $9.49 a course (compare that with others who charge $15.00-$50.00). Or save more with a “Training Six-Pack” (good for a year of bi-monthly training) for only $35.00 more.  That’s just $7.00 a course. Members with a Contracting Carrier Code (CCC) will pay even less — up to 45% less.

Note: if you don’t have a CCC code, ask your primary contracting carrier to contact us to get you one.

Start with one of our ‘core courses’ and you can begin training the morning after you enroll.  Several are available in Spanish too.  Or browse the rest of our Safety Course Catalog for many other training topics to find one that’s right for you.  You’ll have seven days to complete your training and receive a certificate of completion.  Members with a CCC will have a certificate sent automatically to your primary contracting carrier.
