National School Bus Inspection Training - Day 1

Location: Indiana Convention Center & Brownsburg Community School Corporation

Instructors: Mike Bullman, Director of Transportation, South Carolina DOE; Bobby Williams, Asst. Director Fleet Services, Cy-Fair ISD; Jannet Malig, Long Beach (California) Clean Cities

Description:  Developed by school bus maintenance and inspection expert Marshall Casey, STN EXPO offers the National School Bus Inspection Training Program to fully train technicians on how to conduct regular vehicle inspections, above and beyond state or federal Department of Transportation guidance. The eight-hour program held in a classroom on Friday, May 31 and at a school bus facility on Saturday, June 1, is derived from best practices used in overseeing the maintenance of school buses in South Carolina, the only completely owned and operated state fleet in the nation. Attendees will learn how to discover more defects prior to failure, which allows for expedited repairs, increased vehicle uptime, and a more efficient maintenance program. The program includes eight hours of classroom instruction at the Indiana Convention Center, including a written exam, and a second day of hands-on identification of defects on real school buses, hosted by Brownsburg Community School Corporation. New this year is a detailed overview of the differences with electric school buses. Transportation to and from Brownsburg provided by Miller Transportation.

*This program requires separate registration. (Maximum of 50 participants)
