Course Length – Half Day – follows Hours-of-Service – Canadian Requirements

Course Description

This course builds on the Hours-of-Service – Canadian Requirements to introduce more advanced concepts and the US Hours-of-Service rules.

This half-day training session will review:

  • Canadian sleeper split, daily off-duty time deferral, adverse driving provisions
  • US Hours-of-Service rules
  • US Electronic Logging Device (ELD) requirements

Why is this important

Every driver of every commercial vehicle in Canada and the U.S. must comply with rules that restrict when and how long a driver can continue to drive a commercial vehicle.

Single and team drivers using a sleeper berth have additional rules to contend with. Operating in the U.S. means complying with the U.S. rules, and crossing the border involves switching from one set of rules to the other.

Course is Suitable for

Drivers, managers, trainers and operations personnel will understand the rules and will learn about the behaviors and systems that must be in place to stay compliant.
