These training cards have been designed to be quick refresher trainings for drivers that can be reviewed in the break room, while parked and waiting for a passenger to finish an appointment, or at the beginning of the day before beginning a route.  Each card has training information on the front and a set of questions on the back.  After the driver finishes reviewing the information, he/she can answer the short quiz.  There is space at the bottom of the card for both the driver’s and his/her supervisor’s signature.
