America's Best

Each year the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) holds the America's Best Training & Skills Challenge. For 15 years the America's Best program has offered training and a skills challenge for the technicians and inspectors in the school bus industry. In addition to hands-on training relevant to their specific area of expertise, participants have an opportunity to connect with all of the industry suppliers involved in America's Best. In between all of the training activities, participants demonstrated their technical skills and knowledge as they rotated through written exams administered by ASE and various hands-on stations.
