School Bus Rider Safety Training Program

*Note: Given the impact that COVID-19 has had on the 2021-22 school year, OECM and Intertrain have responded by developing an online version of the standardized on-site school bus rider safety program. Content has also been updated to include COVID-19 safety procedures while riding the bus, and more!

The School Bus Rider Safety Training is a regularly updated program that is exclusively available through OECM and our supplier partner, Intertrain Incorporated, in English and French languages. This program is partially funded by the Province of Ontario and was developed in response to the Ontario Auditor General’s 2015 Annual Report recommendations for student school bus safety.

This program is designed to provide Primary (JK-Grade 3) and Junior/Intermediate (Grade 4 – Grade 8) students in Ontario with training on how to be safe in and around a school bus. Such training is designed to actively promote and support appropriate student behaviour and will contribute to a positive school climate.

School Bus Rider Safety Training sessions are age appropriate and use engaging themes, including multi-media and interactive components. Their content is aligned with relevant legislation, regulation and includes key bus rider safety messages. The training sessions are approximately 30 minutes in length and will be presented by skilled trainers.
