START Safety Training and Rural Transit (Instructor's Training Module)
The National RTAP START Safety Training and Rural Transit
Training Module offers information for training new drivers or for refresher training for experienced drivers. The course consists of three training sections:
- Vehicle Safety
- Driver/Operator Safety
- Passenger Safety
The written content was updated in 2015.
The Learner's Guide includes a disc with training videos; a PowerPoint presentation and other instructor materials; and a Flash version of the previous START module. DVDs with videos that can be viewed on television DVD players are also available upon request to email@example.com.
There is an interactive online version of this course – START Online
. It provides the same content, but uses e-learning tools to enhance and reinforce learning: scenarios, exercises, games, quizzes, etc. The online version can be used before, during or after an instructor-led training.
