Mexican inspectors completing inspection training program
Feb 20, 2003 12:00 PM
Twenty eight Mexican inspectors are completing an intensive three-week training program in Calexico CA and Otay Mesa CA to prepare them to conduct commercial driver and vehicle inspections that are in line with existing North American safety standards, according to information from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA).
Completion of the program, funded by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, authorizes the inspectors to apply CVSA decals to commercial vehicles that pass critical safety inspection standards. They’ll also be authorized to place commercial vehicles and drivers out of service when these standards are not met.
The training sessions are hosted by the California Highway Patrol at border inspection facilities, and are conducted by federal and state instructors and CVSA-certified inspectors from California, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.
