Memorandum - Preservice School Bus Driver Training
Please continue to register trainees attending the course using the telephone number listed for each host. Likewise, when a trainee is registered and later decides not to attend, it is appropriate to contact the host site and cancel the registration. It is important that the employer, not the driver candidate, register their drivers. In the event that changes must be made or a class must be canceled, we will contact the employer. Also, be sure to check the schedule (above) frequently for any last minute changes.
After registering a trainee, if the school wishes to start training immediately, the employer may request a certificate of enrollment (blue card) prior to the class (otherwise, the certificate will be issued at the class). The request must be made by email and include the trainee’s name as it is to appear on the certificate, their social security number, and the pre-service class they will be attending. The person making the request must have a signature line in the email that includes full contact information for the individual making the request and for the district’s transportation department, an example of this is the contact information below for any questions about this policy. Such requests are accepted via email by Carrie Glisson at email@example.com.
4th Quarter 2015 Preservice Schedule
BEGINNING WITH THE 4TH QUARTER of 2015, Preservice Class registration will be done on-line. Employers will no longer need to contact the individual host school to register your drivers. It is important that the employer, and not the driver candidate, register the driver for the class. If there are changes to the class, we will contact the employer to communicate the changes. Classes will be closed once the class has filled to capacity or three business days prior to the first day of class.
To register your driver(s), click the registration link to the far right of the class information and you will be routed to the class enrollment form. Please complete a form for each driver that will be attending the class.
As many classes fill early, it is important to cancel a driver if they are not going to attend so another driver may take their place. If you need to cancel one more drivers for a class, please contact Carrie Glisson at 317-232-1377 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. If you are exchanging one driver attendee for another, please let Carrie know, as the class sign in sheets will be pre-populated with the registered driver’s name and information.
A confirmation letter will be emailed for each driver registered in the class. The letter will have important information and links to class materials that should be printed out and brought to the class. Please forward the letter and class materials to each attending driver.
If you wish to begin training prior to the selected class, you can request a Certificate of Enrollment (blue card) at any time. Otherwise, the card will be issued at the class. The request must be made by email and include the trainee’s name as it is to appear on the certificate and the last four (4) digits of their social security number. Please email your request to Carrie Glisson at email@example.com.
If you have any questions concerning the Preservice Classes or registration, please contact Carrie Glisson at (317) 232-1377 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
