UPS Integrad® Training Features “Experiential” Learning Approach To Help Create The Finest Service Providers In The IndustryCOLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UPS announced the opening of its twelfth UPS Integrad driver training facility in Columbus, Ohio. Since the first UPS Integrad site opened in Landover, Md., in 2007, the company has seen dramatic improvements in safety, production and service indices, as well as a reduction in turnover. The curriculum in the one-week course teaches drivers through “experiential learning” that emphasizes hands-on, “real life” scenarios, now enhanced by virtual reality simulations. Prior to UPS Integrad training, the majority of initial driver training was classroom- and lecture-based. Now, drivers practice delivery methods in a realistic setting on an outside course designed to mimic a small town called “Clarkville USA.” Arrayed with small houses, street signs and even a dog bowl to alert drivers of the presence of a dog, Clarkville provides realism in a controlled environment.In addition to the hands-on training that is key to Integrad curriculum, UPS has added virtual reality driving simulations. The use of virtual reality technology allows students to drive without leaving the building. The intent of the simulations is to help students identify potential hazards by visualizing other vehicles, pedestrians, traffic signs and signals, the basis of what a driver needs to drive defensively.A significant portion of UPS Integrad training is focused on safe driving, and is designed to enhance the company’s already strong road safety accomplishments. UPS currently employs more than 10,000 “Circle of Honor” drivers who have driven 25 years or more without an accident. “The sophisticated UPS Integrad training and our focus on adaptive learning styles will guarantee a new generation of Circle of Honor drivers,” said UPS Integrad Expansion Director Tristan Christensen. To date, more than 7,500 drivers and over 1,500 driver supervisors have completed UPS Integrad training. In 2018, UPSers participated in more than 6 million hours of health and safety training. The company spends more than $230 million annually on all driver training and training resources.The Columbus site joins existing facilities in Lake Mary, Florida, West Boylston, MA, Atlanta, McKinney, Texas and Menlo Park, Calif. suburban Chicago, Phoenix, Portland, Ore., and Landover, Md.
