Program Description

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is responsible for setting and maintaining the program standards for the School Bus Driver Improvement Course (SBDIC).

In partnership with the school bus licencing stakeholders, the MTO has made improvements to the SBDIC by introducing new minimum course content and program delivery standards, as well as a formal course provider approval process. The improvements address changes in industry practices, driver’s licencing requirements, vehicle standards, and recommendations made by the Chief Coroner of Ontario. The new program will help facilitate the continued safe transportation of children by ensuring that all new school bus drivers receive consistent and high-quality training.

To expand the reach of this training, IHSA offers the opportunity for companies to become IHSA Training Partners. By becoming an IHSA Training Partner, you not only gain access to IHSA’s innovative training materials, but you can also strengthen a revenue stream for your company. For a minimal investment, you will save on the cost of sending your own employees for training and will be qualified to train others in your industry.

To become an IHSA Training Provider for the SBDIC, review the information on our Training Partner page to make sure you meet the requirements. It outlines the steps to take and the prerequisites you need before enrolling in the instructor workshop.

The School Bus Driver Improvement Instructor Workshop has been redesigned to meet the new SBDIC standards. Students will be required to hold a valid Ontario B or E licence and supply specific information for registration and administration purposes.
