Prevost is the sole sponsor for the ABA Driver Training program, which was developed by safety experts from industry-leading motorcoach companies and manufacturers. The program was designed to give new drivers the knowledge and theory needed to take the test required to earn a commercial driver’s license (CDL). The courses can also be used to provide continuing education for experienced drivers.
The benefit of sponsoring the ABA Driver Training program was clear right away, said Francois Tremblay, Vice President and General Manager at Prevost.
“Prevost’s commitment to our industry goes beyond the manufacture of motorcoaches,” Tremblay said. “We understand that drivers are the key to operators’ business and success, and we will do everything we can to help them recruit, train and retain drivers.”
According to the ABA, each Driver Training course incorporates industry best practices and is peer-reviewed to ensure the safety of drivers, passengers and the public.
The program is also intended to provide an easy and convenient way for motorcoach operators to offer quality driver training and education. The ABA courses can be taken from any computer with internet access, eliminating the need for motorcoach companies to develop, schedule and administer their own training classes.
In addition to its sponsorship of the ABA Driver Training program, Prevost has been a supporter of other industry driver training programs and sponsors complimentary job listings on Hire Heroes, a website that helps companies recruit military veterans for open positions.
