Adelante employees saddled up last month for the 4th annual Driving Road-eo – a fun way Adelante developed to provide, or recertify employees in, van safety training, including passenger assistance, defensive driving, and van tie down. Attendees also compete to win recognition for how well they complete a vehicle pre-inspection, back up a van, or operate a wheelchair lift. Driving and handling all the transportation tasks safely are a big priority for Adelante’s team, so we developed the Road-eo to provide a memorable day of training with peer support, and lots of fun, too.

Teams were comprised of Adelante homes, and groups of individuals from various day programs. Afterward, participants ate barbecue, were awarded prizes, and the top three Road-eo teams collected trophies.

As an added bonus, free flu shots were available for employees and clients who wanted them, to promote a healthy environment. Congrats to all of our winners.

Adelante does provide training to other, smaller agencies for a variety of state-required topics. To see a list of classes or to enroll your staff members, visit http://www.trainnewmexico.com.
