Professional Recognition and Accomplishment

Certification holds numerous benefits for Bus Operator Training Instructors. Whether professional or personal, tangible or intangible, these benefits make a powerful case for pursuing specialty certification.

Professional Recognition and Credibility.

In numerous surveys conducted about the value of certifications more than 90% of respondents agreed that certification validates specialized knowledge, enhances professional credibility, and indicates a level of competence to standards.

Professional Achievement.

As front-line service delivery and passenger awareness become ever more heightened, the demand for experienced, highly skilled Trainers with a depth and breadth of knowledge is on the rise. The preparation and study necessary for successful completion of certification examinations improve ability to impart know-how and skills to trainees. Continued competency requirements for certification renewal ensure that certified Training Instructors remain up-to-date with the latest developments in their specialities.

Creating a Knowledge Sharing Culture

  2. Enables you to better evaluate the talents and skills of others. With the discipline to master the material for the certification, you are in a better position to evaluate the skills of others.
