inspection 15

There still is time to register for the two roadside inspection training courses offered by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.

The courses are intended to provide members of the trucking industry with the training to better understand the roadside regulatory requirements, according to a statement from the CVSA. The goal of the training is to provide each student with the tools and knowledge to achieve compliance with the roadside safety regulations and a better understanding of the relationship between regulatory violations and out-of-service conditions.

CVSA is offering two separate weeklong courses – one on roadside inspection driver requirements and the other on vehicle requirements.

Industry Roadside Inspection Course – Driver Requirements will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah June 11-15. The focus of the training will be on driver-related roadside requirements and out-of-service conditions. The course includes information on regulatory definitions, intrastate vs. interstate operations, CDL and driver qualification requirements, hazardous materials, hours-of-service rules, annual inspections on commercial motor vehicles and the DataQs filing process. The deadline to register for this course is Friday, May 25.

Industry Roadside Inspection Course – Vehicle Requirements will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah, on July 16-20. The training will focus on regulatory vehicle-related roadside requirements and out-of- service conditions, including regulatory requirements of 49 CFR 393, 396 and Appendix G. The course is designed to thoroughly explain the regulations, North American Level I Inspection Procedure and Out-of- Service Criteria as it relates to the vehicle components of a commercial motor vehicle. The deadline to register for this course is June 29.

The cost is $995 for Class III associate members of CVSA or $1,195 for non-members for each five-day course. There’s a class size limit of 25. Open spaces remain for both classes.

“Our industry members have been asking for training on the CVSA Roadside Inspection Program for a long time and we’re now finally able to offer that valuable training,” said CVSA Director of Roadside Inspection Program Kerri Wirachowsky. “This is essentially the same training our inspectors receive, adjusted for industry.”

The target audience is motor carriers, owner-operators, commercial motor vehicle drivers, technicians, fleet managers, vendors, etc. Interested individuals do not need to be members of CVSA to register. Both training courses are open to members and non-members.
