Corporate Risk Reduction – SKID School

CPD-4.1    Collision avoidance (theory / in-vehicle / skid control)             (full day)
This is our most comprehensive program for the professional driver. Drivers will learn and practice “Collision Avoidance Techniques” under everyday and adverse driving conditions (skid control/winter driving). This interactive course discusses personalities, behavior and their relationship to how we, and other drivers conduct themselves while driving. Drivers will be asked to overcome “old” habits by making adjustments to their driving philosophy. In doing so, they are able to develop methods to reduce the risk of being involved in a crisis. When making these adjustments and applying the techniques learned, drivers will think about creating and managing the safest driving environment possible.

Learning outcomes:
•    Learning how personality affects driving
•    Understanding the decision making process and the consequences of their decisions
•    Identify current driving habits and correct where needed
•    Understanding that crashes are predictable and preventable
•    Understanding the critical role vision plays in the operation of a motor vehicle especially in times of panic
•    Crash avoidance techniques and skid recovery skills
•    A better understanding of a vehicle’s braking system including anti-lock braking (ABS)
•    To gain a better perspective of the complex tasks associated with driving
•    Understanding that driving requires 100% attention, 100% concentration 100% of the time

Location:
•    Local roads, expressways and skid pad

Method:

CPD-4.2    Collision avoidance (theory / skid control)                     (1/2 day)

This half-day program concentrates on providing drivers with the skills necessary to minimize the risk of collisions and injuries if they lose control of their vehicle. This interactive course discusses personalities, behaviors and their relationship to how drivers conduct themselves while behind the wheel. Drivers will be asked to overcome “old” habits by making adjustments to their driving philosophy. In doing so, they are able to develop methods to reduce the risk of being involved in a crisis.

Learning outcomes:
•    Understanding the decision making process and the consequences of their decisions
•    Identify current driving habits and correct where needed
•    Understanding the critical role vision plays in the operation of a motor vehicle especially in times of panic
•    Crash avoidance techniques and skid recovery skills
•    A better understanding of a vehicle’s braking system including anti-lock braking (ABS)
•    To gain a much better perspective of the complex tasks associated with driving
•    Understanding that driving requires 100% attention, 100% concentration 100% of the time.
