Kelly Anderson Group - Their e-Learning Does It All
With classroom training, it is virtually impossible to get all your drivers in one place, at one time. On average, in-house safety meetings can cost between $2500-$3000 per meeting. That number represents a mid-sized company with approximately 50 drivers. With that cost, it is easy to see why so many companies are switching to a cost-effective online safety training approach.

GNJMA Platinum Sponsor, Kelly Anderson Group offers the top-tier e-Learning programs in the industry. Their platform may be accessed through any browser or mobile device.

"One of the biggest challenges fleets face as it relates to professional development for drivers is getting them to take the courses and to adopt the instruction into their daily life. To change this paradigm, change the reason drivers take the courses. Get them to admit the reason they drive is to provide for their family and that every decision they make needs to be in perfect alignment with reaching that goal. You are providing access to Professional Driver Development in support of that goal." Kelly Anderson, President
