This 40-hour course provides instruction strategies for teaching Driver Education in the classroom and behind the wheel. Completion of this training is required in order to be certified to teach Driver Education in either private Driver Education schools or in public schools.
Instructors currently teaching classroom curriculum or behind the wheel on a training waiver, are required to take this class in order to continue teaching.
Understandably, we have all been impacted by the effects of COVID-19. State agencies, including our office, are required to work remotely while striving to maintain maximum services to constituents. Although there appears to be progress battling COVID-19 there is no definitive time line to achieving operational normalcy. In recognition of this, TSD has directed our office to facilitate all summer driver education training programs via live, virtual platform. Thus, face-to-face training is suspended for 2022. It’s important to remember that all training requirements must still be met by June 30, 2022.
In order to access the live virtual training, individuals will need to have the following: Continuous internet access, PC or MAC with camera and microphone, and ability to access free software, such as Zoom, GOOGLE CLASSROOM, or similar.
Because these training courses will require either student manuals, handouts, or further instruction, individuals will need to pay for and enroll in the course at least ten (10) days prior to the start date. This will allow time for us to ship manuals, handouts, etc. for your use.
No further extensions, variances or waivers will be considered. Friends, as we are all attempting to negotiate through these unforeseen and challenging experiences, we very much appreciate your cooperation.
