The New York State Professional Development Seminars (PDS) is a mandatory, one-day refresher course for SBDIs, with a different topic taught each year. SBDIs must attend one of the courses each year to retain their certification as a School Bus Driver Instructor.
This year’s 2019 PDS letters have been delayed due to the NYSED contract extension.
The PDS classes will be held in May and June. A complete list of scheduled PDS class dates, locations and instructors will be posted at 10 a.m. on Monday, February 4, 2019.
