Trainer Certification Policy
Staying Competent is all about Staying Current
Smith System DriverTrainers are given two-year certifications upon initial training and recertification training. The Recertification Course, offered in both private and multi-company formats, is designed for attendance to training certification expiration. The course will also ensure your trainer certifications remain up-to-date and your investment in training continues to pay the highest possible dividends. Most importantly, current trainer certifications ensure your drivers are receiving the highest level of training quality while also demonstrating your company’s commitment to preventing motor vehicle crashes.
DriverTrainer Recertification courses are not available for DriverTrainers whose certifications have lapsed beyond one year after the two-year certification date. In other words, there is a one-year grace period beyond the two-year training certification expiration. After that, DriverTrainers will need to attend the initial five-day course to achieve recertification. DriverTrainers whose certifications have lapsed six months beyond the two-year certification are temporarily restricted from purchasing instructor materials.
We encourage all of our partners to keep Smith System certified DriverTrainers sharp, focused, and effective. To learn more about our DriverTrainer Recertification Course, visit our website at www.smith-system.com or call us at 800-777-7648 to discuss your program or schedule a recertification class.
