The NIPSTA Public Works Driver Training Program is certified by the International Academy for Professional Driving (IAPD).
The two-day course is designed to enhance the driving skills and knowledge of public works personnel. Training includes classroom instruction and hands-on driving exercises. Program success is measured on a pass/fail basis and requires student proficiency on a written exam and in many driving simulations.
A Certificate of Achievement is awarded at the conclusion of the program. It is valid for three years and may be renewed thereafter upon completion of a one-day re-certification course at NIPSTA.
The IAPD curriculum is a complete driver improvement program. Students develop skills and knowledge that will enhance their on-the-job performance. Caution and efficiency are reinforced each day of training. Driving activities are specifically designed to be intense, but in a safe environment at controlled speeds.
Departments that participate in this comprehensive, proactive program will reduce their accident rates and liabilities.
Program includes course materials.
