CMV DRIVER BASICS COURSE OVERVIEW

safety mom online course

The job of a professional driver comes with many responsibilities. In addition to knowing how to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) safely, drivers are expected to handle a variety of other duties, ranging from handling cargo to passenger safety to customer service.

To handle all of these responsibilities, you must understand the importance of operating safely, being a qualified driver, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

This course is designed to provide drivers with basic information about being a CMV driver.

After completing this course, learners will be able to identify the four critical topics that every CMV driver should be familiar with:

  • Driver qualification – become familiar with the requirements of Section 391.11 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR). This includes general qualifications, physical qualifications, and what can cause disqualification.
  • Driver wellness: Identify what constitutes wellness, such as cholesterol levels, blood pressure, weight and diet, exercise, alcohol and drug use, stress, and fatigue.
  • Hours of service: Discuss what is required by the hours-of-service regulations and what information should be recorded on the duty status record.
  • Whistleblower protection: Drivers should become familiar with their rights and how they are protected from retaliation from their employers for filing a complaint about a violation of a safety or health regulation.
