Mandatory eLearning requirement at D4 – additional option now available

Written by Ellie

The FORS Security and Counter Terrorism eLearning module has been added as an option to satisfy the mandatory safety eLearning element of requirement ‘D4 Professional development’.

This is effective immediately and also applies retrospectively meaning anyone who has already completed this module since its launch in December 2017 can use this module to meet the D4 eLearning requirement.

Therefore, members can now select from the following four modules for their drivers: Cycle Safety, Van Smart, Smart Driving and Security and Counter Terrorism. Check the ‘Spotlight on safety eLearning modules’ section of this eNews for more information about each of the safety eLearning modules.

Whilst drivers can do any of these modules in any order, for those beginning the accreditation journey with FORS, Cycle Safety in the first year is a good starting point for truck drivers and Van Smart is the best module to start with for van drivers.

FORS Security and Counter Terrorism eLearning module aims to raise driver awareness of potential security and terrorist threats, specifically in terms of theft of vehicles or loads and the use of vehicles as weapons. It also aims to improve driver identification and reporting of suspicious behaviour or activity. For more information, and to access the module, please click here.

FORS is also supporting the Action Counters Terrorism (ACT) campaign launched by Scotland Yard Counter Terrorism Policing to encourage the public to help the police tackle terrorism and save lives by reporting suspicious behaviour and activity.
