School Bus Driver Improvement Training
This is a 2-day Training Event.
In 1995, the Alberta Student Transportation Advisory Council (ASTAC) entered into an agreement with Alberta Transportation to take over most of the program's day-to-day administration. Sixty certified agents deliver the program throughout the province. School bus fleets with 15 or more buses may apply for delivery agent status. The specialized "S" endorsement instructors and school bus instructors are employees in the safety and training divisions of the carriers or the school divisions. Private driver training schools could also be certified to instruct the "S" endorsement program.
Starting July 31, 2019, all bus drivers who transport students, whether they have class 2 or 4 licence will be required to obtain the S endorsement before transporting students. This includes existing bus drivers who have already have their class 2 or class 4 licence. This course allows teachers who drive CBE owned buses to be compliant with the new requirement in time for the next school year.
