Professional Industry Driver Training Program

The Professional Industry Driver Training and Professional Log Truck Driver Assessment and Endorsement Program

Since 2017, subject matter experts and industry safety working group members from the Log Truck Technical Advisory Group (LTTAC), log hauling contractors and training institutions have helped guide and shape the content of this program with a key initiative to standardize the level of training and assessment for Professional Industry Drivers and Professional Log Truck Drivers.

The Program identifies the specialized skills, knowledge and attributes of a Professional Industry Driver and Professional Log Truck Driver in the province of British Columbia. It also provides tools to assist employers with meeting their responsibility to ensure workers are qualified and competent as required by regulation.

The Program provides flexibility for drivers to meet competency outcomes with these recommended best practices:

  • new drivers who have taken an appropriate training program that utilizes the program learning resources and incorporates a mentor program,
  • experienced commercial drivers new to log hauling who have reviewed the online learning resources and participated in a mentor program and
  • experienced log truck drivers.
