The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has been offering online training courses through its learning management system for more than two years. As the need and demand for online education continues to increase and members have expressed interest in access to more online training, the Alliance has been working hard to implement a new easy-to-use online learning platform which features improved navigation, clearly organized content, a variety of multimedia offerings and more training courses.
The CVSA Learning portal features:
- A more user-friendly interface
- More online training courses
- Segmented categories, such as CDL, COHMED, Roadside, Level VI, etc.
- Virtual “badges” that mark completed courses
- Links to relevant government regulatory authorities
- An intuitive website structure
- Important CVSA resources, such as inspection bulletins, educational videos, one-minute Inspection Bitz videos, emergency declarations, news, regulatory and legislative information, etc.
For members who have used the CVSA learning management system before and have passed courses or partially completed courses in the previous system, please log into CVSA Learning and contact CVSA LMS Specialist Wendy Smith to have the new system updated with your course records. Previous course records cannot be uploaded until the member has logged into the new system.
In addition, previously passed courses can be retaken. For instance, the General Hazardous Materials Refresher courses and the Class 7 Radioactive Material Inspections for the Non-Level VI Inspector course were recently updated and have new material.
Access to the new and improved CVSA Learning portal is an exclusive benefit offered to the CVSA membership. Whether you’re a law enforcement official, a motor carrier safety manager, a transportation safety advocate or an executive at a trucking organization, there is training in the CVSA Learning portal for you.
To access CVSA Learning, log into your CVSA member portal then click on the “CVSA Learning” tab. The “CDL” link at the top of the page provides training and resources for law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, motor carriers and drivers specifically focused on CDL regulations. Law enforcement personnel can click on “Roadside” for access to inspection and enforcement training. And the “COHMED” link goes to online training on hazardous materials/dangerous goods.
