Two U.S. Army Traffic Safety Training Program courses are scheduled to reopen Friday, following a months-long hiatus due to the need to work out COVID-19 risk-mitigation measures, the Fort Leonard Wood Garrison Safety Office announced.
Individuals may sign-up now for the Intermediate Traffic Safety Training and Remedial Driver Training courses online through the U.S. Army Installation Management Command registration system at https://imc.army.mil/airs/usg_disclaimer.aspx.
The traffic safety training program is required training for all Soldiers and is designed to reinforce a positive attitude toward driving, individual responsibility and correct response to routine and emergency driving situations. Each progressive traffic safety training course builds on the previous module to reinforce the Army’s expectations for a safe driver.
The Intermediate Traffic Safety Training Course, which reinforces initial traffic safety training, is required for all newly assigned Soldiers under 26 years of age. Other personnel may be required to attend the training as deemed necessary by the local command.
The Remedial Drivers Training Course is a command-directed course designed for military or civilian personnel who, while operating a government vehicle, have been convicted of a moving traffic violation, or have been determined to be at fault in a traffic mishap.
Individuals taking the courses will be required to follow all COVID-19 mitigation procedures required on Fort Leonard Wood.
