Automatic Testing and Record-Keeping
In addition to providing ELDT-compliant training, ITI’s Sentix ELDT enables CDL schools to test student proficiency. Once completed, student scores are passed to the upcoming federal Training Provider Registry. CDL schools can either use the built-in mastery-based testing, or show the courses in a classroom setting with tests automatically assigned afterward. The Sentix LMS records the assessment score, shares to the federal database, and will meet the recordkeeping requirements of the ELDT mandate.
Through ITI’s Professional Services team, ITI can help assess a fleet’s or CDL school’s overall ELDT readiness and provide a transition plan for school trainers.
