Training for drivers

Shayal Devi
Wednesday, January 08, 2014

SAFETY on the roads is paramount for the staff and management of Pacific Destinationz, and for the fourth year in a row, the leading inbound tourism company is investing in training its drivers.

The training is to upgrade participants in skills and knowledge of road safety and provide the company with an opportunity to review their drivers' performance in 2013 and prepare for the 2014 tourism season.

For this year's program, the company has engaged the services of overseas trainer and consultant David Kinnaird.

An accomplished professional driver and trainer from New Zealand, he has been conducting training programs for Pacific Destinationz since 2011, focusing on areas such as safe and fuel-efficient driving techniques, advanced defensive driving skills and dealing with fatigue.

Mr Kinnaird also worked on the management and effects of alcohol, yaqona and drugs during his stint as a professional driver.

Pacific Destinationz said the Land Transport Authority fully supported the training program which was attended by LTA officers since 2011.
