SECCCA has developed, in conjunction with Strategix Training Group – specialists in techniques to improve fuel economy and vehicle performance, a training program that is currently being implemented across twelve councils in Melbourne’s south-east and east.
The Eco Driver Program can be tailored to the needs of your organisation, however it typically involves a small group of about 5-8 drivers a day. It has been designed to only require 2.5 hours of each driver’s time, allowing them to undertake normal duties for the remainder of the day.
The course consist of a 60 minute classroom session with all participants, followed by one-on-one practical driver training, and another 30 minute classroom session with all participants at the conclusion of the day.
The training is supported with a full suite of resources including a DVD, website, driver handbooks, program framework and evaluation methodology.
