OOIDA to host FMCSA trucker training session

| 10/6/2006

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association headquarters in Grain Valley , MO, will be the site of a two-day training session later this month on how federal regulations impact truckers.

Representatives from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will conduct the free classes.

On Tuesday, Oct. 24, two sessions will deal strictly with hazmat regulations. On Wednesday, Oct. 25, an all-day session will cover general trucking issues ranging from load securement to hours of service.

The sessions are free, but there is limited seating and reservations are required. For more information, call OOIDA’s main number at 1-800-444-5791.
