2023 P.R.I.D.E. Certification Program:

For 32 years the P.R.I.D.E. Program has provided fleet driver instructors with powerful, non-lecture adult training techniques and philosophies that resonate with new and seasoned drivers to encourage and sustain safe commercial driving habits.

The P.R.I.D.E. Certification Program has been updated as per MTO requirements and as a result the program has been extended by 10 hours to include the required criteria. The new curriculum includes all original program content and new MTO requirements. To further enhance the program, MTO written and road test content is included as well as a session on developing effective safety meetings.

The 2023 registration fee for the Certification Program will be $3,300 for association members. The fee increase reflects increased costs, new program development and implementation and the cost of six lunches (previously not included in the registration fee).
