The New York State Professional Development Seminar (PDS) is a mandatory, one-day refresher course for 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.  

This year’s 2019 PDS has been delayed due to the NYSED contract extension.

    YOU CAN ONLY SIGN UP FOR ONE CLASS.  This will be strictly enforced!
  • Each session begins promptly at 8am, with registration at 7:45.  No late entrants allowed.  Sessions end at 4:30pm
