CINCINNATI — School Bus Safety Co. (SBSC) and Scenario Learning have partnered to provide school bus driver training courses online through the SafeSchools Online Staff Training System.

The safety and compliance training system now offers SBSC’s Driver Training Course, which is composed of 25 modules on various pupil transportation topics, including checking for sleeping children, danger zones, driver distractions, safe backing, and safety best practices.

“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,” SBSC President Jeff Cassell said. “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.”

Using the online system, administrators can assign training courses, automatically track progress, download compliance reports, and view or print certificates of completion. Group training offline can also be tracked and documented in the system.

“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,” Scenario Learning CEO Brian Taylor said.

According to the companies, thousands of districts nationwide use the SafeSchools Online Staff Training System to manage safety training compliance. The system’s online library includes hundreds of courses on school safety and compliance topics.
