Ottawa is experiencing a school bus driver shortage.  To build capacity in our market, a new School Bus Driver Preparatory Course has been developed in partnership with OCSB, OSTA and local operators.   

The School Bus Driver Preparatory Course is designed to prepare potential candidates to successfully complete training with local school bus operators.  The course covers essential certificates like First Aid, Health and Safety and WHMIS; basic school bus terminology and vehicle components; student behaviour management and sensitivity-training; a ride-along with a professional bus driver/trainer; a tour of dispatch and garage operations; and includes the opportunity to book an interview with potential employers in the Ottawa market.
