Brief history of EDS
The founders began the journey in 1996 with a mission to train drivers at all levels specific to industry demands. In 1998, they pioneered integration of virtual-reality simulation into training activities that presented advanced learning to trainees in a learning environment. After partnering with leading simulation manufacturers, they separated ties and began Excel Driver Services in 2001.
Our experience is a testament to our success in the training of over 130,000 drivers since 2001. The knowledge of research conducted in diverse conditions has enabled us to diversify from standard hands-on and lecture trainings to new online and simulation training programs. We integrate curriculum throughout our different branches of operation which include training, manufacturing of advanced training equipment through Sim-Tech, and reporting through Drive Prodigy™. The result is a seamless integration to our students as well as our corporate clientele.
