British Columbia 2011
Fundamentals of Commercial Driving
Combing elements from several already existing courses as well as a lot of new material we've created an all-in-one bundle to teach the fundamentals of commercial driving within British Columbia. This course applies to anyone driving a commercially "registered" vehicle for a "provincially regulated" motor carrier. That is, anyone who drives within the boundary of British Columbia.
This course will cover the basics of Hours of Service, Cargo Securement, Emergency
Procedures, Trip Inspections and Registered Vehicle Requirements.
