Join ICCT as they officially launch the Spanish versions of their SmartDriver for Highway Trucking course. The courses are a collaboration between Natural Resources of Canada (NRCan), SmartWay of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), and Agencia de Sostenibilidad Energética de Chile (AgenciaSE). SmartDriver en español is available to Spanish-speaking drivers in the Americas and around the world, available in three different versions: Fundamentals, Fleet Drivers, and Owner-Operators. There is also a separate Chilean version, SmartDriver Chile, available for members of the Giro Limpio program. Presenters will preview and highlight training features and showcase the results of a new study demonstrating the effectiveness of the training in Latin America.
