Due to budget cuts and company spending based on other priorities it may not always be possible for members of staff to be sent on special training. However, based on the advancement of technology many institutions now offer free opportunities for persons to learn about changing trends in a particular field.
For instance, Forester University, the educational division of Forester Media, the publisher of Stormwater Journal, often hosts free webinars or online seminars for its clients.
Since our Agency uses the Trimble GPS units, the upcoming webinar on July 22nd may be of interest to members of staff. This webinar would be highlighting GPS fleet management, in terms of its benefits and how telematics can be used to improve driver and vehicle safety, reduce fuel speed and increase productivity and efficiency.
