UMA Motorcoach Expo attendees will learn about CSA 2010
When most people think of CSA 2010, they assume that these new regulations apply primarily to semi-trailer truck operators. However, this recently released set of rules is also affecting professionals who work in other sectors of the transportation industry.
For instance, motorcoach drivers are also obligated to comply with this program. Consequently, CSA 2010 will be covered at the United Motorcoach Association (UMA) Motorcoach Expo later this month, School Transportation News reports.
Presenters will cover new regulations concerning vehicle maintenance, driver safety, distracted driving and pre-employment screening practices. Anne Ferro, administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, will be among the speakers who address these issues.
The event, which is slated to take place in Tampa between January 19 and 22, will feature a series of other educational workshops for members of this industry. According to the UMA website, these offerings are intended to teach motorcoach operators how to work as efficiently as possible.
Professionals in this and other transportation-related fields may be to able to learn how to work smarter by enrolling in online truck driver training courses. These offerings could help operators avoid violations, which could put them behind on their duties.
