Jul 14, 2006 12:14 PM
Schneider National Inc, Green Bay WI, has received an Excellence in Practice Award from the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD). Schneider National was recognized in the Learning Technologies category for its simulation-based driver training program.
In 2004, Schneider's driver training group implemented the use of simulation-based training using ground simulators, equipment similar to flight simulators but designed to develop skills for driving on roadways. Since then, the company has lowered its new driver dropout and termination rates by nearly 10 percent, and lowered accident frequency and severity by as much as 20 percent. Overall the implementation of simulation-based training has saved Schneider National millions of dollars, the company said.
