Elements of the Training
The course starts out discussing the attitude of the driver and how to ensure they keep a positive attitude while operating a motor vehicle. There is also focus on managing risks while driving, such as scanning, getting the big picture, the protective bubble around your car, handling skids, emergencies and reading other drivers to help predict their actions. Training sessions examine how the following five components interact to influence the success and safety of the driving experience:
- In case of emergency
- Becoming a safer driver, training material requirements, and cost
Certified instructors are required to purchase a participant workbook for each person they train (one certification card is included with each participant workbook). Participant workbooks start at $4.39 per book and are reduced on a sliding scale based on quantity ordered. Instructors who are members of the Evergreen Safety Council receive a discount on book orders.
