There is only one adult on board and his or her primary mission is the safe mechanical operation of the vehicle on congested or lonely roads. Just as important is his or her secondary mission of managing the students, their parents and unexpected incidents along the route. This one-of-a-kind training is designed to equip the driver with skills to handle this secondary mission. The training includes taking classroom knowledge and moving it into physical demonstrations on a bus, interactive exercises and sharing with others in the field.  All this serve to make the workshops dynamic and relevant. The Guide that supports the training serves as a great resource but was not intended to act as a “self taught” lesson.  Skills provided by this training include:
