The Passenger Assistance Safety and Sensitivity (PASS) Trainer and Driver Certification program ensures that community transportation drivers have current expertise in passenger assistance techniques and sensitivity skills appropriate for serving persons with disabilities. The PASS program is designed as a three-day Train-the-Trainer workshop to certify trainers who can then train drivers or as a two-day Driver training in which our instructors train your drivers. Some of the advantages of offering the PASS certification program is the ability to reduce organizational liability; comprehensive, up-to-date training on the assistance drivers should be providing to passengers with special needs; intensive emergency situation training; certification oversight provided by national leaders in the community transportation field; and updates for all participants on relevant regulatory changes. The certification is valid for three years and can be renewed on-line, or by attending a PASS workshop.
