Tread Lightly - ECO Driver Training Programme

ECO Driver Training E-Learning Online Programmes Fuel Efficency


Tread Lightly A Proactive Approach ECO Driver Training:

With the cost of fuel continuing to rise & causing a major concern to many organisations, the benefits of providing either on-road ECO Driver Training or an holistic approach combining both on-line E-Learning and on-road driver training can vastly improve fuel savings, improve whole life vehicle costs.


Additionally such training will have an influence and benefit employees in their private motoring. When our E-Learning on-line ECO Training package is utilised as part of an holistic approah all employees using the programme can assign the ECO Training to a member of their family.


Duration of this coure is flexible and can meet the needs of the organisation. However, the ideal format would be Theory Session of around 1 to 1.5 hours followed by on road coaching and assessments. Driver to trainer ratios for on-road element ideally should be 2:1 to allow passive learning to take place.


E-Learning ECO Training Modules:

Our E-Learning ECO Driver Training Modules are manually assigned either as a stand alone or part of a suite of programmes in our online driver training programme (see Programme Packages).
