Fleet Source meets online Driver CPC demand with new TV studio-based training
Fleet Source has deployed an interactive TV-based training solution across its Driver CPC classroom course offering to help its customers maintain training.
The training, which follows the DVSA’s decision to suspend classroom courses, has been fully approved by DVSA and is ‘Livecast’ to delegates.
It includes dynamic, interactive content, designed to ensure delegates’ experience, engagement and learning retention is much better than that provided by traditional webinar solutions.
Fleet Source CEO, Nick Caesari said the training has been developed to ensure customers can meet the challenge of meeting increased demand for delivery of vital foods, medicines and hygiene products, whilst adhering to Government restrictions on social distancing and minimising the risk of incidents whilst making deliveries.
“Our customers have been asking me how they would be able to meet these demands whilst ensuring that the growing backlog of CPC training does not impact their business post the crisis and during vital business recovery periods,” he explained.
The training has also been developed to provide the quality of traditional classroom training while also helping to ensure driver engagement.
“Anyone who has taken part in traditional webinar-based learning knows that it can be a painful experience, with your attention span challenged and your learning retention somewhat limited even for short courses. Imagine what it would be like for drivers undertaking a traditional webinar for seven hours in a single day!
“Even if you split that into two 3.5-hour sessions over 24 hours, it will still be difficult for drivers. You must bring that learning to life. Through our Livecast experience using a TV studio, delegates can interact with the trainer, as well as each other from their home, replicating the classroom experience whilst staying safe.”
Fleet Source has created a dedicated TV studio at its Letchworth headquarters, with a large majority of its previously classroom-based courses being delivered and managed live by qualified DCPC training professionals, teaching up to 24 delegates each session.
Course registration and identity checks are undertaken digitally before every course and each delegate is monitored and assessed throughout the course to verify full course attendance and to ensure learning outcomes are achieved.
“Fleet professionals are contacting us for support to cover immediate demand, but also to use available time to ensure catch-up in mandatory training provision to cover lower volume sectors,” said Caesari.
“Ours is a dynamic industry working very hard to meet current challenges and prepare for the future beyond this current crisis. We’ll do everything we can to work with them to deliver the right solutions to meet their needs.”
