Minnesota was the first state to require training for all Special
Transportation drivers. In order to be employed as an STS driver in
Minnesota candidates are required to complete 16 hours of training
for an Ambulatory-only driver and 20 hours of training for a
wheelchair transport driver,
within 45 days of being hired.
Driver re-certification is required every three (3) years.
Emergicare is the first STS driver
training provider to endorse and incorporate Minnesota's "Toward Zero
Deaths" program in defensive driving classes to raise awareness of
the dangers of distracted driving and road rage. Visit:
Minnesota Toward Zero Deaths
for more information.
We were also the first training provider to
include Compression-Only CPR in our Driver First Aid classes, although
it is not required by MN DOT. As if January 1, 2017,
two drivers have
saved lives by succesfully using the skills they learned in class!
We have been providing in person, hands-on Special Transportation Driver Training to
drivers for all providers since 2000 and have been certified by the
Minnesota Department of Transportation to teach all four catagories;
Defensive Driving, Passenger Assistance, both Amulatory and
Wheelchair, First Aid and Maltreatment Awareness/Abuse Prevention.
Emergicare has been actve in patient transportation and
training since 1973.
