Tractor Trailer In-Vehicle Training

Course Code: TRUK 101

The Tractor Trailer In-Vehicle Training course covers the practical skills required to operate a tractor-trailer in today's heavy traffic environment. For the duration of in-vehicle instruction, students are under the supervision of professional instructors who supervise their driving and provide ongoing instruction and feedback. Students are trained in 2015 International ProStar tandem axle tractors equipped with the latest technology. Some of the areas of study include pre-trip inspections, coupling and uncoupling of trailers, double clutching and progressive shifting, fuel-efficient driving, application of defensive driving techniques, backing procedures and proper docking techniques, traffic and road management, post-trip inspections and vehicle shutdown. Please note that as of July 1, 2017 Ontario's new mandatory entry level training (MELT) standard comes into effect. Programs with completion dates after July 1st may be subject to change. Humber's programs exceed all current MELT standards. PREREQUISITES TRUK 150 A Tractor-Trailer Operator Theory TRUK 121 Z Air Brake Endorsement
