Transportation Operations and Dispatching

Covid-19

Update

Due to the current restrictions concerning Covid-19, we have restructured how we are providing our Dispatcher Training. We have converted the above 7-day instructor-led course into a 2-week Blended Course or a completely online format. 

 

The Blended Course Format:

 

1) The course will have a defined start and completion date.

2) Class times will start at 9 AM each day. They will run for approximately 2 - 3 hours each day, with a 10-minute break each hour. Afternoons will have seminars and assignments to be completed and will be discussed the next morning. 

 

2) In class we will discuss specific industry topics, regulations and assist clients to learn the skills they will need to enter the transportation industry as a Dispatcher.

 

3) We will be facilitating both group and one on one sessions to assist the clients to work through the Virtual and Online content required to complete this course successfully. 

 

4) There will be ample in-class time dedicated to instruction in the Dispatch and Border Crossing Documentation Softwares. We have also designed worksheets so that the clients have enough practice to become proficient in their skills. 

5) The Blended course will be $2500.00 plus GST

The Online Course Format: 

 

1) The online course will be a work at your own pace with a flexible completion date. Questions will be submitted through email and answered in the same fashion. The content will be the same, but it will be done independently. 

 

2) The online course will be $2000.00 plus GST

Both formats will provide clients with 6 certificates in total;

·        Hours of Service

·        Fatigue Management

·        Customer Service

·        Conflict Resolution

·        Workplace Harassment

·        Transportation Operations: Dispatcher

As well as training and ample exercises in Dispatch Software and Border Crossing documentation. ​

We will be providing clients with the best possible experience in the current situation, and we look forward to discovering what the new normal will be.
