Course Description

The Oilfield Driver Awareness course replaces two courses previously offered by Enform – General Oilfield Driver Improvement (GODI) and Light Duty Vehicle (LDV).The new Oilfield Driver Awareness course will be launched August 31, 2014.

Guided by the six industry associations, the decision was made to combine the information from the General Oilfield Driver Improvement (GODI) and Light Duty Vehicle (LDV) courses into one course – Oilfield Driver Awareness.

The Oilfield Driver Awareness course is focussed on developing effective driver behaviour and attitudes, helping drivers maintain an attitude of safety when they are behind the wheel. The updated material has less emphasis on technical driving instruction.

Course Details
The course duration is 8 hours and is offered at a fee of $150 – the same cost as the GODI or LDV courses.

The course material will cover the following:

  •  Developing a professional driving attitude
  •  Understanding and dealing with personal limitations (physical and mental well-being)
  •  Driving proactively – how to be an defensive driver
  •  Responding to changing road conditions
  •  Planning for the journey
  •  Controlling exposure to hazards
  •  Developing Emergency Response Plans
  •  Performing safety inspections

Certification
If an individual currently holds a valid General Oilfield Driver Improvement or Light Duty Vehicle certificate no action is required. Once their certificate expires they will be required to take the new Oilfield Driver Awareness program.

The Oilfield Driver Awareness certificate is equivalent to the General Oilfield Driver Improvement or Light Duty Vehicle certificate. Provincial agencies are aware of the updated course offering and will be accepting the Oilfield Driver Awareness certificate as a replacement of the GODI or LDV certificate.

Demerit Reduction
The demerit reduction process for the new course will remain the same as it was for the General Oilfield Driver Improvement or Light Duty Vehicle certificate.
