Special Transportation Service Driver Training
Minnesota D.O.T. required Special Transportation Service training classes are scheduled throughout the year.
Minnesota is currently one of only three states in the country that requires state-certified training for drivers of special needs and vulnerable passengers and patients. The required classes are Defensive Driving, Passenger Assistance Training (Ambulatory and Wheelchair), Abuse Prevention/Maltreatment Awareness and Basic First Aid, and are scheduled regularly. Emergicare's trainer is certified by the Minnesota Department of Transportation to instruct all four areas of training. We also can teach the required eight hour refresher course and seven hours of Continuing Driver Education that MN DOT requires for driver recertification every three years.
News and Notes:
Coming Soon: On-line Training! We are working on moving much of our training to a primarily on-line format. First Aid is already completed, and we are working on the Passenger Assistance - Ambulatory section now. We hope to have everything completed, code written and submitted to MN DOT for approval by the end of June. Stay tuned here for updates!
Private Training Classes at your location are still available. We have literally traveled all across Minnesota, from Northome to Grand Meadow, Morton to Duluth, to present STS driver training. E-mail us for further information.
Refresher Training: Per current MN DOT requirements, a driver is required to take 8 hours of classroom training (First Aid, Defensive Driving and Passenger Assistance/Abuse Prevention-Maltreatment Awareness) and have 7 hours of documented Continuing Driver Education (CE), or take 15 hours of classroom instruction, every 3 years. (See Tuition page for costs)
