Professor of Taiwan’s National Chiao Tung University Speaks on Effectiveness of Yamaha Driving Safety Training
Established in 1989, Yamaha Driving Safety Promotional Foundation has executives from YMT and YMRT as well as college professors, government officials, and local representatives as its members.
As a part of CSR activities as a motorcycle manufacturer, YMT has been offering basic motorcycle training to students in high school and institutes of higher education in various parts of Taiwan to help promote the safe and enjoyable use of motorcycles. A total of 134,000 students participated in the training between 2006 and 2017, and YMT’s effort has been supported by the national government.
On March 8, Mr. Hsin-Li Chang, Professor of National Chiao Tung University, was invited. He spoke at the foundation’s board meeting about the effectiveness of the driving safety training referring to an analysis of its monitored results. Based on the widely-known Kirkpatrick Four Levels Evaluation Model, the effectiveness analysis was conducted with 201 training participants as its subject. It was an interim evaluation covering Level 1 and 2 “Satisfaction Level of Training” and “Behavioral and Attitude Changes/Awareness of Risks/Self-development”. The result proved that our training had been effective.
We will continue to monitor the effectiveness of the training and promote driving safety as a part of our CSR activities.
