Three Rivers College explores school bus training program – KAIT

SIKESTON, Mo. (KFVS) – The recent gift of a school bus has Three Rivers College (TRC) looking into adding a possible new training program.

The college said they are exploring options in making a four-week-long driver training program available.

They are currently in the planning phase.

If approved, the course offered would likely include theory, classroom time and behind-the-wheel training.

TRC said students who complete the program will receive their CDL license with school bus and passenger endorsements. This will allow them to be hired as a Certified Bus Driver.

Those interested in driving a bus can sign up by contacting the TRC Workforce Development Department or the school they would like to work for.

3 Rivers Director of Workforce Development Leann Clark said there are many opportunities in the Heartland.

“There’s a desperate need for bus drivers in our region, ” stated Clark.

The bus was donated by the South Central Missouri Community Action Agency (SCMCAA).

For more information about the potentially new bus driver training program, contact Clark at 573-840-9682 or by email .
