Course Syllabus
April 2, 3, 7, 8, 2022

Course Summary
The Commercial Vehicle Weights and Dimensions course facilitated by Leduc County provides officers with a basic understanding of overall commercial vehicle enforcement for the purposes of protecting public roadway infrastructure. This 4-day intensive course is designed for law enforcement professionals and is packed with current information pertaining to commercial vehicle configurations, industry terminology and definitions, legislation, weights and dimensions, enforcing road bans and bridge restrictions, and laying charges under provincial laws. Participants should be prepared to receive a significant amount of information, reinforced with practical written worksheets exercises and scenarios. Each lesson builds on previous modules, ending with a final written examination on the final day. Students who achieve 80% or higher on the final exam will receive a certificate.

This course is NOT a legal requirement to enforce commercial vehicle duties in Alberta, and the certificate provided does not grant any specific authorities of expertise. However, the course is an excellent resource taught by experienced officers to help law enforcement professions conduct investigations and prosecutions within this specific field of traffic enforcement.
