Re: How Much Training?

Recommended Posts

Regarding California's most recent fatal, it was noted from another post that the tow operator killed may have been newly hired with only two-days on the job? Question: Why would any tow company send an inexperienced tower into the proverbial lion's den until that tower had been thoroughly trained? There's something tragically wrong if that pans-out to be a true statement. I personally believe that ALL tow operators and service technicians (of all trades) must be thoroughly, "highway trained", before being dispatched to calls on high-speed freeways. so owners, what actions do you take to ensure your personnel are thoroughly trained noting that, California's Vehicle Code Section, 2430.5, and its Freeway Service Patrol program, REQUIRES, every FSP operator attend a 3-day, CHP, highway safety course that includes TIM training. May I ask, what are your company's MINIMAL training requirements for on-highway response for new hires and those who claim that they're experienced? Thanks.
