Toronto FSC Chapter supports OTA Stakeholder Strategic Review Committee re MELT

At the January 21st, 2016 meeting of the Fleet Safety Council Toronto Chapter, the members carried a motion to support the Ontario Trucking Association and the Stakeholder Strategic Review Committee that it is important, for the mandatory entry level training standard (MELT) to achieve its desired goal, that:

  • The MTCU standard is consistent with and reflective of the National Occupational Standard for truck drivers;
  • The learning outcomes and performance objectives are competency-based, measurable and observable.
  • It be recognized that the point of graduation or “end point” of the MELT process is the when the competency level achieved is sufficient for the candidate driver to pass the MTO written and practical commercial driver’s license test.

The Toronto FSC Chapter shares the joint concern that the MTCU draft standard as currently written, does not meet the above criteria and requires a significant amount of work and revision before it would form a basis for the desired improvement in the quality of truck driver training sought by the introduction of mandatory entry level training.
