Bus Driver Training Courses – Perfect for Summer through MSGIA’s School Bus Safety

By Shawn Bubb, MSGIA Director of Insurance Services 

MSGIA property and liability pool members have a very valuable asset they want to protect – their buses and the treasures that ride within them.  Our pool members have access to some of the best training materials available for your current bus drivers and drivers studying for the CDL exam.  All courses can be easily accessed on the MSGIA’s online platform through Safe Schools by just selecting your school district name on the following link from the MSGIA website and entering your login credentials.

SafeSchools Training - MSGIA

Summer is a great time for your drivers to accumulate their 15 hours of needed training and to get ready for the next school year before it starts!  The course collection has 25 core bus driver training courses, 1 specialized course on transportation bullying prevention, and 8 specialty courses on transporting special needs students. The course-included MAP 21 compliance material for the new federal standards will round out all your team’s training needs.  Many districts are developing new drivers who don’t yet have their CDL License.  With the 7 CDL test prep courses and unlimited practice exams online, your new drivers will be ready to successfully take their written and in-person driving exams for their CDL certification.

We know that accidents sometimes are going to happen.  We strongly encourage you to utilize the MSGIA mobile app to promptly report any incidents. (Instructions for using the app are located on the bottom of the fleet vehicle insurance card as seen here: each card has your own # to enter.) Return to newsletter
