Taxicab Training • Executive Sedan Training • Paratransit Training • Limousine Training
TCS provides a number of products and services for improving ground transportation driver training programs. Since our inception in 1995, TCS has consulted on, designed and delivered ground transportation training programs and related procedures in more than 100 projects across the United States. TCS has training expertise in virtually every passenger ground transportation mode, including taxicab, limousine, paratransit (ADA and for-hire), medical transportation, airport shuttle, on-airport transportation, campus transportation, National Park Service, motorcoach / tour, commuter and a variety of other specialty transportation modes. In addition to assisting private and public sector clients with their internal training programs, TCS provides direct training to instructors, support staff and drivers. Thousands of drivers and support staff have received training from TCS or have worked with procedures that TCS has provided or enhanced. TCS options for training program enhancement include providing professional instructors, training materials and templates, training videos, train-the-trainer programs and training program consulting. In addition, we have provided consulting to transportation regulators on their oversight of local training programs.
TCS Directly Trains Drivers / Staff
For example, in just one of our contracts with a municipal government, TCS has directly trained more than 1,000 drivers in all of this jurisdiction’s licensed for-hire transportation modes (taxicab, limousine, shuttle, paratransit and contract drivers). This project included training all existing drivers in the jurisdiction. The project has received consistently high ratings from participants as well as regulators. In this example, a new ordinance and an RFP contract award to TCS resulted in no new costs to the City for the program, as all costs are paid by the participants. In addition to driver training, TCS has also provided various training programs for managers and supervisors of transportation related organizations. Fees can be based on a per-class or per-participant basis. Please call or e-mail for additional information.
TCS Provides Training Program Packages and Support Materials including DVDs/Videos, PowerPoint Slides and Participant and Study Guides
TCS has packages of support materials or templates for most of our training modules. Available support materials include training DVDs, PowerPoint slides and participant’s guides. Many DVDs and other support materials can be used directly in driver and/or instructor training (see our web page for list of modules). For modules requiring local content, we also provide kits with sample information to facilitate program self-design and instructor training , and we can also provide custom design work.
TCS Custom Development, Consulting and Auditing of Training and Driver Screening / Licensing Programs
TCS provides screening and training program custom design, auditing, and other services including consulting on driver selection and permitting / licensing, training content and delivery, testing and more. This work will be tailored to your level of need, from limited consultations to comprehensive design. Consultations can be via teleconferences or on-site visits, and can also be in conjunction with TCS Train-the-Trainer programs. TCS also consults on licensing and other regulatory matters; please see our website for much additional information on our regulatory consulting background.
TCS provides train-the-trainer seminars as well as other training for dispatchers, other staff and management. These can be presented to your team at your location. Enroll on our web page under “seminars” to receive notices and/or call.
