Earlier this spring, officials from Canacar (Camara Nacional del Autotransporte de Carga, Mexico’s counterpart to the American Trucking Association), Cecati 84 (workforce/training agency for the State of Baja California), and U.S. truck manufacturer Kenworth Trucks gathered in Mexicali, Baja California for the inauguration of a new truck driver training center, Autotransporte de Carga.
The director of the new Mexicali center, Jesus Omar Bon Campos, notes that its training will be provided through the ATS Quadrant methodology of integrating “adaptive training” into a time-tested four-element approach: instructor-led training, computer-based training, simulator-based training and selective directional input. “Aspiring drivers,” says Bon Campos, “can learn the basics of driving, as well as develop the skills necessary to deal with adverse weather and road conditions, before boarding a real truck. We have five simulators, two trailers, and a maneuvering track of 20 hectares (about 50 acres).”
