2020 PDS for SBDIs and COVID-19

All PDS material has been mailed out to active SBDIs and MIs who successfully completed the online version of the 2020 PDS! The hardship process has begun and all approved hardships must have their 200 PDS assignments and forms mailed to PTSI by October 30, 2020. Failure to do so will result in an inactive status.

The Professional Development Seminar (PDS) is a mandatory, one-day refresher course for New York State School Bus Driver Instructors (SBDI’s), with a different topic taught each year.  SBDI’s must attend one of the courses each year to retain their certification as a School Bus Driver Instructor.



PTSI is open under current CDC and NYS Guidelines and restrictions.
