Prime introduces Highway Watch audio training

Prime Inc. is distributing to their 3,300 drivers a new audio CD that will train them on how to participate in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Highway Watch program. Prime is the first trucking company in Missouri to utilize this training format. Having the training in audio format significantly decreases the time needed for training over-the-road truck drivers to recognize potential safety and security threats and avoid becoming a target of terrorists, the company said in a news release. “Drivers can now be trained as they do their jobs instead of waiting weeks to schedule and participate in an instructor-delivered seminar,” Robert Low, president and founder of Prime, said. Dora Cook and Larry Gudger, a husband-wife team that drives for Prime, were eager to use the new audio training program. “Drivers can now be trained as they¹re waiting in traffic” Cook said. “Anyone out there will have an hour a day.”The company said John Hancock, director of training and driver recruitment, had been working for several months with the Missouri Motor Carriers Association to develop this CD when the federal government heard about the idea.
