UCN, MPI launch new driver training program in northern MB


University College of the North and Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) have partnered to launch a new program and increase access to driver training in northern Manitoba. The region currently has a disproportionately high traffic fatality rate, and so the program is intended to help create safer roads. The UCN Class 5 Adult Driver Training Program will feature in-class and in-car training and will use adaptable cohorts to respond to the fact that learners may join the program at different stages of the licensing process. “Improving access to driver training is one of the best ways to develop and grow the workforce in northern Manitoba,” said UCN Associate VP, Community & Industry Solutions Jamie Grant.
