School Bus Drivers Now Receiving Training Online in MO, OK, FL, IA, WY, and WV
PENSACOLA, Fla., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ —School Training Solutions (STS) welcomes Independence School District, Independence Missouri, to its online training community. Independence joins other districts across the U.S. that are already taking advantage of this online training to satisfy yearly in-service requirements for school bus drivers. School Training Solutions partnered with transportation and safety supervisors in Independence to create a custom in-service catalog for its district that drivers began using on August 1, 2013.
“We chose School Training Solutions because it really goes in depth with the training, and the testing is a great way to find out what the bus drivers know,” stated Bruce Maples, Supervisor of Safety and Discipline for Independence School District. He also considers the interactive aspect of online training a plus, as drivers are not just listening to a lecture, but are participating in the learning experience. “We are thrilled to partner with Independence School District, and are committed to providing quality education for their in-service needs,” stated Patrick Willi, Director of School Training Solutions.
Online training is becoming increasingly popular for its many benefits. The flexibility of online training allows participants to complete the training at their own pace and in their own time-frame. Documentation and reports are readily available, thus reducing the amount of paperwork and making it easier to track progress. Online training is also significantly less expensive than classroom instruction.
