Don't get stuck at survey time without a qualified trainer or worse a qualified driver! Enroll potential trainers NOW! Participants successfully completing this course will be qualified to train drivers as well as non-driver passenger assistants within the facility.
The Passenger Assistance/Motor Vehicle Operation course has been designed so the trainer may teach it in three (3) major modules which may be offered in steps to aide in scheduling trainings within the facility:
MODULE 1: A "how to" in training others in basic passenger assistance techniques for day to day resident contact. Time Frame: 4.25 to 5 hours
MODULE 2: The participant will receive instruction in advanced passenger assistance techniques including the use of wheelchair lifts and the securement systems in vehicles. Time Frame: 4-5 hours
MODULE 3 - MOTOR VEHICLE OPERATION: The participant will receive instruction in safety, defensive driving, pre & post-trip inspections, and other information needed as well as how to communicate to those responsible for transporting residents. Time Frame: 6.5 to 9 hours.
MODULE 4 - FACILITY SPECIFIC UPDATE: Allows facilities to transfer certificates with minimal update training.
This course covers all requirements of the August 2000 Transportation Regulation in State Licensing Rules.
