Canada’s electronic logging device (ELD) compliance deadline is scheduled for June 12, 2021. If you are an ELD vendor or motor carrier that currently operates or plans to operate in Canada, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) is offering a Canadian Hours-of-Service/Electronic Logging Device (HOS/ELD) Training Course in Rosemont, Illinois, from March 10-12.
This training is for anyone – motor carrier safety directors, owner-operators, commercial motor vehicle drivers, technicians, fleet managers, ELD vendors and programmers, etc. – who wants to learn more about Canada’s HOS rules and its upcoming ELD mandate. The course will provide in-depth information on the HOS rules in Canada, including daily, work shift and cycle rules; the daily deferral rule; single and team driver sleeper berth requirements; and exemptions. The course will also cover the rules for north versus south of latitude 60°N. An official from Transport Canada (the department within the government of Canada that develops transportation regulations, policies and services) will be in attendance to address questions and discuss the differences between U.S. and Canadian ELD specifications and third-party certification requirements for devices in Canada.
Registration for this training course is $675 per person for CVSA members; $775 for non-members. The course will be a full three days; travel should be booked accordingly. CVSA has kept its class size small, limited to 40 people, to ensure students and instructors can connect more closely, fostering an enhanced learning environment. The deadline for registration is Friday, Feb. 21.
