March Webinar to Address New Federal CDL Regulations
If your company currently trains people to earn their CDL or you are contemplating doing so, new federal regulations go into effect February 2, 2022. There is a lot training providers can do to prepare ahead of time; for example, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will host a free webinar, Preparing for the Entry-Level Driver Training Regulations and Training Provider Registry on Thursday, March 4, to explain the new system.
The Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) regulations and the Training Provider Registry were mandated under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). As of February 22, 2022, individual instructors must register on FMCSA’s Training Provider Registry to train CDL applicants. The new regulations will allow your trainers to actually test a candidate for his/her CDL. Training provider registration opens Summer 2021. Additionally, once operational, the FMCSA Training Provider Registry will retain a record of which CDL applicants completed the new training and certification process as outlined in ELDT regulations.
Please note that space for this webinar is limited, so register today. And for more information about the ELDT regulations and the Training Provider registry, visit FMCSA’s Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) site.
