May 17, 2017 
12:00-1:00 PM ET

Topic:  Human Resources, Operations, Safety & Compliance, Legal Contracts & Insurance
Level:  All
Type:  Webinar
Sponsored By: Omnitracs

This webinar provides 1 CE credit toward the Truckload Academy Human Resources or Recruitment Certificate.  It also provides 1 CE credit toward renewal of the Certified Fleet Manager (CFM) designation.

Complying with all 516 pages of FMCSA’s ELD Mandate is a daunting task.  And carriers only have until December to do so.  In this webinar, Omnitracs Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Tom Cuthbertson will explain how you can tell if an ELD device will meet the technical specifications of the regulation.  He will explain why a “registered” or self-certified device does not mean it is compliant.  You will also understand what technological advancements are not required, such as the ability to automatically control the vehicle. 

Tom will share the most important issues related to training and awareness such as editing of logs by carriers and drivers. Recruiters, driver managers and others who interact directly with drivers, will gain an understanding of the mandate to help them allay driver concerns.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Key items in the mandate
  • Key elements for ELD administrators
  • New functions for drivers
  • Security requirements
  • Training and policy points
This interactive program will provide opportunities for you to ask questions.
