Kunhadi launches training academy
Kunhadi, a nongovernmental organization for traffic safety, is launching an academy to train taxi drivers.
Fadi Gebran, founder, said: “Our team has and will receive extensive training from British and Australian experts, as well as experts from the International Road Transport Union.” The team will then train one hundred taxi drivers during the first year, starting in 2016.
In the third year of the project, the academy plans to train 800 taxi drivers, including those who work in taxi companies. “We will charge $20 to $30 per person for a three-hour course.”
The Municipality of Hazmieh has dedicated a lot for the training sessions to take place.
Drivers who undertake the course will receive a certificate and a label from Kunhadi. They will be monitored on a yearly basis to make sure that they continue to respect the guidelines and rules of traffic safety.
