Smith System Launches Complete Redesign for E-Learning Content

Arlington, Texas – March 2, 2015 – Smith System, the leader in professional driver training, has launched completely redesigned E-Learning content for its Forward and Backing Motion courses.

The new E-Learning platform contains streaming video, computer graphics and interactive test content to engage the viewer in over 90 minutes of E-Learning courses covering both Forward and Backing Motion training for small vehicles and trucks. The courses are grouped in modules that review the Smith 5 Keys to Space Cushion Driving® in 6 to 7 minute segments. The courses are accessed through Smith System’s Learning Management System (LMS) that tracks each student’s completion level and test scores.

Course content is available in 10 languages including English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Chinese, Dutch, Norwegian, Thai and Portuguese. The Forward and Backing Courses can be purchased separately or as a combined Forward/Backing package.

“Our new E-Learning content is based on the proven methodology of the Smith 5 Keys,” said Frank Powers, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for Smith System. “We are excited to update this content for viewing on a wide range of browsers and on any type of device including smartphones, tablets and laptops.”
