[Edmonton, Alberta], [May 25, 2023] – Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario (TTSAO) and Impirica team up to create safer roads in Ontario by implementing the ExceleRATE program across the province.  

ExceleRATE is a proactive driver risk evaluation designed to answer the question of driver fitness-for-duty. The program addresses the challenge of identifying impairment risk resulting from underlying medical conditions, which traditional training methods may not detect.  

For the initial roll out of the ExceleRATE program, a select number of TTSAO registered schools will be offering ExceleRATE to their existing and prospective clients for third party evaluations. As part of this roll out, TTSAO members will be the only approved schools in Ontario to offer this cutting-edge technology for driver assessments. 

“Joining forces with associations like TTSAO is vital for ExceleRATE to reach and help as many drivers as possible.” said P-J Barclay, CEO of Impirica. “TTSAO’s commitment to excellence in training aligns perfectly with our vision, and we are excited to work together in promoting the highest standards of driver assessments and training.” 

Philip Fletcher, President of TTSAO, stated, “We are proud to advocate for Impirica’s ExceleRATE program as a game-changing solution for driver assessments and training. By embracing innovative technologies, we can enhance the quality level of drivers on our roads and maintain public confidence in the trucking industry. This partnership exemplifies our commitment to excellence in training.” 

The partnership between Impirica and TTSAO highlights their shared dedication to advancing driver assessments and training, promoting safety on the roads, and fostering continuous improvement within the trucking industry.
