Navistar recognizing diesel techs as part of National Technician Appreciation Week


“Our technicians are the men and women getting their hands dirty with our vehicles on a daily basis, and their enthusiasm inspires us.” Navistar recently graduated the 2022-2023 Uptime Academy class, which consisted of 18 apprentices. Officially launched in 2021, Uptime Academy is a 12-month apprenticeship program for high school graduates that offers hands-on training to prepare for a career as technician. Online truck driver training provider CarriersEdge has introduced a new series of courses to help managers and supervisors evaluate and improve their leadership and teamwork skills. According to Harvard Business School, emotionally mature workplaces function better, and leaders with better-developed skills like empathy perform 40% higher in decision-making, coaching and engaging others. “Over the years in our Best Fleets program, we’ve seen how companies invest in ways to boost the leadership skills of their management teams,” said Jane Jazrawy, CEO of CarriersEdge.
