a2om seeks support for driver training initiative
a2om is discounting its driver training software suite from £25 to £2 when delivered to pupils through schools and colleges, and is seeking help from RSos to subsidise and distribute the resource.
a2om has developed a portfolio of e-learning modules, online tools and driver education qualifications for all drivers. The company works with government agencies, corporations, police forces and schools to deliver the software based components of driver education, evaluation, diversion and training programmes.
The course materials take the process of licence acquisition beyond technical skills and into the areas of attitude and behaviour which broaden experience and mature the driver when they are at their most vulnerable.
a2om is asking RSOs to subsidise the £2 cost and ensure widespread support for this initiative. For more information contact Oliver Gale on 07525 990 589.
