STS Highlights: November 2019

Past years, the National Safety County has estimated over 400 deaths and more than 52,000 injuries in car crashes during the Thanksgiving holiday period. This year, remember to take the extra time, remain vigilant on the road, and arrive safely to your holiday destinations. Enjoy this month’s selection of resources. We hope they provide timely reminders for driving and give you some inspiration as we approach the end of the year.

Hopeful,
Patrick

Thank You for Visiting Us at the NAPT Conference in Columbus, OH

Thank You for Visiting Us in Columbus, OH

STS Booth picThank You

Thank you for visiting the School Training Solutions (STS) booth at the NAPT Conference & Trade Show in Columbus, OH. It was a busy conference with a lot to offer the pupil transportation industry. During my conversations throughout the event, I noted a few topics that kept coming up.

  • NAPT Certification Courses Online. NAPT, in partnership with School Training Solutions (STS), offers NAPT Professional Development Series courses online. You can begin working on Certified Pupil Transportation Specialist (CPTS), Certified Supervisor (CSPT), and Certified Director (CDPT) certificates or work toward your recertification.
  • In-Service Training. As you know, many states require yearly in-service training for school bus drivers. In most cases, the topic(s) and method of training is left up to the school district and/or transportation department. Our online classroom curriculum for school bus drivers can be an option for in-service training!
  • Remediation Training. Unfortunately, accidents happen. Minor infractions create an opportunity to learn new techniques or sharpen skills. Our individually priced courses are a great solution for these remediation moments. Your driver can take the course online and print a completion certification when they have successfully completed the course.
  • Custom Training Catalogs. STS can put together a custom training catalog, built to your specifications, so your employees get the right training. Courses can be pulled from our full transportation catalog or general topic courses like Sexual Harassment Awareness, Bloodborne Pathogens, Time Management, or Stress Management.

Let us know if School Training Solutions (STS) can help you implement an online training program for your school bus drivers or other school employees.
