The Beginning Class is a mandatory 18 hour, 5 day class, and is offered for beginning school bus drivers who have met all prerequisites, or who have a certificate of course completion that has expired.
Drivers are asked to arrive a few minutes early to sign in and receive the class materials. Drivers should bring the Beginning School Bus Driver Manual with them to notate updates. Class breaks will be provided during the training and drivers are encouraged to bring a snack or lunch as catering is not provided.
