Free online certification for Vermont diesel truck drivers and fleet managers

Vermont Idle Free Fleets offers free online training and certification for Vermont diesel truck drivers and fleet managers about the benefits of idling reduction. This comes from a partnership between the American Lung Association and the University of Vermont Certification for Sustainable Transportation and from a grant from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation.

The program’s goal is to help fleets produce cost savings, increase vehicle efficiency, reduce the number of employee sick days and reduce environmental impacts.This certification, which takes approximately 40 minutes to complete, will help drivers understand the health and environmental impacts of idling; vehicle wear and tear from idling; and fuel consumption and costs associated with idling.
