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 work.  Shippers don’t like accidents or the drivers who get into them.  Start with one of our ‘core courses’ (several available in Spanish too).  Or browse the rest of our Safety Course Catalog.  You’ll have seven days to complete your training and receive a Certificate of Completion.

A4DD makes training easy, with interactive online courses available 24/7 at a cost way below market.  With A4DD you always pay less than $10.00 per course compared with commercial providers that charge $15.00-$50.00.  Members with a Contracting Company Code (CCC) pay even less: 15%-30% less.  Save the most by purchasing a “Training Six-Pack”.  When you’re out of commission you can’t earn commissions, so enroll today.

Note: members with a CCC get a Certificate of Completion sent automatically to your primary contracting company.  If you don’t have a CCC code, ask your contracting company to contact A4DD to get you one.
