Specialty Courses

High Center of Gravity/Rollover Prevention

Classroom and mobile simulators are utilized to provide instruction the student will be required to exhibit during actual driving session. The mobile simulator is capable of placing the driver in an environment too dangerous to demonstrate on the road. This simulation allows the instructor to view and correct habits that could create hazards for the driver during an actual emergency.

Utilizing the equipment actually operated by the driver and education delivered, drivers are evaluated to identify and correct behaviors that are considered risk factors for rollover and operation of High Center of Gravity vehicles. In addition, drivers determined to present a risk to person or properties are reported to corporate clients for additional consideration.

Class A – 60 hour

Refresher courses are designed to assist individuals who may have exited the industry for extended periods of time or who have been identified to possess risk potential by their companies.
