The entry-level driver training (ELDT) rule has been delayed for two years. The new compliance date is February 7, 2022. Though the rule has been delayed, schools and training entities should continue to prepare for this final rule, as the requirements are complex. It will take a substantial amount of time to implement all curriculum, facility, equipment, and instructor requirements.
This course can be used to help satisfy the theory instruction portion of the new entry-level driver training (ELDT) requirements that go into effect on February 7, 2022. To satisfy the theory instruction requirements, this course must be assigned and administered by a school or other entity listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Training Provider Registry (TPR). To satisfy the complete ELDT training requirements, the school or entity conducting the training must provide the driver-trainee "behind-the-wheel" instruction in addition to theory instruction.
Human trafficking is a serious crime. Every day, women, men, girls, and boys are forced into commercial sex trafficking, forced labor situations, and domestic servitude.
As professional drivers, the nature of their job allows them to observe, identify, and report these crimes. Drivers tend to frequent the most common places where many of these exchanges happen, including motels, restaurants, truck stops, rest areas, and gas stations. That puts them in a position to help disrupt established trafficking networks and enable law enforcement to rescue victims before it’s too late.
This course is designed to expose learners to the knowledge about what human trafficking is, how to recognize it, and what they can do about it.
After completing this course, learners will be able to:
- Describe human trafficking and identify those who are most at risk
- Recognize the signs of human trafficking
