he NIPSTA Public Works Driver Training Program is certified by the International Academy for Professional Driving (IAPD).
This 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.
