Hi, as a bus operator whether it be your main business or if you operate buses as a support to your main business, training can be a costly and time-consuming activity. Unless you are one of the big operators employing a trainer and managing subsequent requirements, training can be cost prohibitive.

This allows course completers to be well informed, knowledgeable and a be advocates of healthy and safe work environments. Participants not only learn how to source and interpret information relevant to the bus industry, but will also have learned strategies on how best to deal with daily incidents and issues. Each participant that completes the course not only gains an in-depth knowledge which is recorded via assessments, but receives virtual badges and a completion certificate, providing proof of completion and knowledge. This can be used by students as valuable currency as they move into or through the industry and by employers as proof of training, induction, refresher training or post-accident training.
