What the Fast Track Accelerated Bobtail Course IS NOT!

This course is not a strategically and tactically presented introductory course for inexperienced or new employees with NO Cargo Tank Motor Vehicle (BOBTAIL) knowledge. The course is not an in-depth program that drills down on each module. The training program does not provide detailed explanations of the course content.

PRIOR EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED or student self-instruction is imperative to pass the final exam for this accelerated class.


What This Course IS

It is a professional development program focused on experienced professionals. Attendees will aggressively complete a workshop training that will provide key learnings together with best practices to advance through the program. It is our final goal to allow attendees to study with a live instructor and pass the final exam and to ensure the attendees a total value learning experience similar to Blended Learning or better.  Students are expected to read up on all modules. Students must complete the module quizzes prior to class. This is an essential component to instructor led accelerated learning.


This offering requires some self-study or advance preparation and this will allow the actual class to complete in less than one day, including live electronic testing on the PERC website at the end of the instructor-led session..
