Trucking Compliance 101

This NATMI Trucking Compliance 101 course will cover the basics for any trucking/heavy vehicle fleet operation. Whether you need a primer on the fundamentals of regulatory compliance and the responsibilities of a commercial vehicle owner or a refresher on drug testing policy and safety foundations, this is the course for you.

This custom-designed workshop is for all fleets, regardless of interstate/intrastate status or private/for-hire operations. These topics will help any safety or operations manager make better decisions both operationally and safety-wise. Reduce costs through best practices, prepare for possible regulatory audits and dramatically lower insurance and legal exposure by learning the best ways to run your fleet and hire/retain drivers.

This course is interactive and is led by a professional trucking industry expert. Topics will include:
