Why PTSI’s Online Theory Training?

PTSI has opted to provide the Theory part of this mandated training in an online platform, which provides school districts and bus companies the convenience of having their new drivers train at their own pace and in the comfort of their own home. Because new trainees come to your on-staff Trainers already prepared for the range and road parts of the mandated training, there will be less time demand required of your Trainers.
