For Trucking Professionals

Resources for Truck Drivers & Professionals

The Dave Fons Memorial Fund recognizes and appreciates the very important role of truck drivers. We are not anti-truck. We are constantly striving to help make truck driving safer for operators and everyone on the roads.

How we Can Help

We sponsor numerous training programs for professionals. These are presented in collaboration with the State of Michigan and the Michigan Center for Truck Safety. These trainings include professional driver coaching, defensive driver course for truck drivers, and a mobile truck simulator program. If you are interested in participating in one of these programs, please contact us.
