UPS opens Massachussets driver training centre
UPS has announced the opening of its ninth next generation Integrad driver training facility in West Boylston, Massachusetts. Massachusetts is an interesting choice of location, as UPS initially worked with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), as well as Virginia Tech and the Institute for the Future, when it developed its training programme.
Curriculum in the one-week course teaches drivers through “experiential learning” that emphasizes hands-on, “real life” scenarios.
The West Boylston site joins new facilities in Atlanta, McKinney, Texas and Menlo Park, Calif. Other U.S. locations include suburban Chicago, Phoenix, Portland, Ore., and Landover, Md. UPS also recently announced a new location in Cologne, Germany.
