Basic Driving Instructor Course

The Basic Driving Instructor Course allows individuals to train and become a qualified driving instructor based on the Ministry of Transportation Ontario (Canada) standards. Some of the topics covered in the course are as follows:

Fundamentals of learning and instruction
Coaching principles
Basic driver education review
In-vehicle instruction techniques

Our classes are taught by industry experts who teach using an experiential learning method. Classrooms are small and facilitate collaborative learning and discussion. The technologies that have made our renowned training programs so effective are used in our career college courses, including audience response systems and simulators, which bridge the gap between theory and in-vehicle. Instructors can learn and practice in-vehicle instruction techniques in the safety of the simulator.
