Online driver training provider AlertDriving has launched a micro-learning platform with three training courses for fleet drivers, the Toronto-based company has announced.

Clients can build custom driver safety training programs that include individualized driver learning plans using content from one of three distinct training curriculums, including the Professional series that consists of 15-minute lessons and an assessment, the Essentials series that covers core safe driving topics in 5-minute lessons, and the Express series that features narrowly focused 1-minute snippets. 

To support this effort, AlertDriving is expanding its existing content library of 4,300 lessons to more than 25,000 lessons. In addition, the platform's administrative tracking and reporting tools have been translated and localized into 52 languages covering 125 countries.

Users can access AlertDriving's new micro-learning platform as an external portal from any browser, or through their existing corporate Learning Management System.

"The increased flexibility of micro-learning translates into a more effective, engaging and enjoyable user experience, since it reduces the cognitive load on today's busy and time-sensitive learners," said Gerry Martin, chief executive of AlertDriving. "We also think it is going to appeal to organizations that have a limited training envelope, but still want the benefits of regular touch points. This is an exciting customer-driven initiative that widens our advantage in the driver safety training space."
