CINCINNATI, OH (August 1, 2016) – According to the American School Bus Council, an estimated 480,000 school buses carry 26 million children – more than half of America’s schoolchildren – each day, making school buses the largest form of mass transit in the U.S. and driver training a top priority for school districts.
To help keep students safe, Scenario Learning, the leading developer of safety and compliance solutions for schools, colleges and workplaces, and School Bus Safety Company (SBSC), the leading resource for school bus driver training announce a partnership to deliver premium SBSC training courses online through the SafeSchools Online Staff Training System. The market-leading safety and compliance training system now offers SBSC’s Driver Training Course, comprised of 25 modules on important topics every bus driver should know to safely transport students.
“As customer needs have evolved, we sought out to find a way to deliver our industry leading school bus driver training through a web-based platform,” says Jeff Cassell, President of SBSC. “More than 3,000 school districts use our DVD training materials, and we’re excited to partner with Scenario Learning to provide a new, convenient way to train bus drivers on important topics that will ultimately save lives and keep students safe.”
Topics covered in the online Driver Training Course include Checking for Sleeping Children; Danger Zones; Driver Distractions; Safe Backing; Safety Best Practices and more. All modules in the Driver Training Course are 100 percent school bus driver focused and written by school bus safety experts to ensure that the content is relevant and applicable for all transportation staff members. Using the online system, administrators can easily assign training courses, automatically track progress, download compliance reports and view or print certificates of completion. Group training offline can even be tracked and documented in the system as well, allowing for convenient training in a classroom setting.
“Creating safer school environments is at the very core of what we do, and we’re thrilled to offer life-saving online training to school bus drivers through our partnership with SBSC,” said Scenario Learning CEO Brian Taylor. “Providing training through our online system speaks to the commitment SBSC has made to student safety and we’re honored to work with such an outstanding company.”
Thousands of districts nationwide, including 33 of the top 100 largest in the U.S. use the SafeSchools Online Training System to efficiently manage safety training compliance. The system’s comprehensive online library includes hundreds of courses covering important school safety and compliance topics, all written by the nation’s leading safety experts.
