The world and the job market keep score – hence, don’t you think that you should attend a training program that (drum roll please) – KEEPS SCORE.
Vehicle Dynamics Institute (VDI) and ISDA does a lot of research on driving – training – anything that will help us be better at what we do. While conducting the research, we notice the word we see most often is “Average.”
The “average” driver can use only 50 % of the vehicles cornering capability.
The “average” driver will use x feet to stop at x speed.
If you have an average occupation, you can survive being an average driver.
The students that attend our programs don’t have an average occupation – if they did, they would not be at our programs. Our clients are paying us to ensure that the product (the student) is above average – way above average. This is why we go to great lengths to measure driver performance, our clients demand it, and they want to know if they got what they paid for.
And of course there is another reason – we demand it from ourselves. Most of the students that come to our programs will use what we taught them – and when shit happens, they can’t be average.
In fact, being average is not good for business.
