Defensive Driving Course (DDC 4)

9:00am - 1:00pm

description

The National Safety Council’s Defensive Driving Course (DDC 4) is a fast-paced, four-hour driver improvement program that also makes an ideal refresher course. In just a half day, DDC 4 offers practical strategies to reduce collision-related injuries, fatalities, and costs.  It addresses the importance of attitude in preventing crashes, and reinforces the good driving skill students already have. Most importantly, DDC 4 shows students the consequences of the choices they make behind the wheel, and puts defensive driving in a personal context. It is a multi-media classroom course and does not involve hands-on driving.

The goals of this training are to:

•  Influence and challenge participants to change their behind-the-wheel behaviors and attitudes so they will choose to drive safely, responsibly and lawfully

•  Provide participants with new, correct, or reinforced basic knowledge, skills and techniques to avoid collisions while driving at work, or in their personal vehicles

•  Renew awareness of roadway safety, update knowledge, skills and techniques of defensive driving

•  Reduce the risk of vehicle collision and personal injury. 

Also, this course qualifies for CEU credits!  Earn 1 CEU for wastewater treatment operators or 4 CEUs for water supply operators.
