A course designed for business owners and safety managers, covering all major components of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.

Before launching Trucksafe Consulting, LLC and Trucksafe Academy, Brandon Wiseman worked as an attorney and partner with Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson & Feary, the largest transportation law firm in the U.S. While there, Brandon helped lead the firm's DOT Safety & Compliance practice group, counseling carriers of all types and sizes on all things DOT safety. He assisted clients with developing safety programs, policies, and procedures from the ground up, represented them before the FMCSA in administrative appeals, safety rating upgrades, and civil penalty cases, and tackled some of the most complex regulatory issues plaguing the industry.
Over the years, Brandon has spoken regularly at industry conferences and events, lecturing on topics such as driver onboarding, hours-of-service, ELDs, CSA and SMS, DOT enforcement, safety ratings, and much more. Brandon also taught a course on DOT safety at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis and has published a number of articles and white papers on the topic.
