Van training: A reminder for K-Staters

By Lynn Salsbury

Since 2001 there has been a Kansas State University policy for students and staff who operate the larger vans. Some may not be aware of this policy; others realize the need to drive, but not in time to take the required Van Training. The policy can be found in the Policy and Procedures Manual.

Division of Facilities offers National Safety Council’s, Coaching the Van Driver III, throughout the year on both the Manhattan and Salina campuses. Facilities will have one more class this year from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Dec. 4 in Room 226 at the K-State Student Union.

Next year's training sessions will be offered again starting Jan. 29, 2014. View a full schedule of classes and sign up. Your eID and password are required to register.

Planning ahead and getting the van training completed in advance will help your organization when it comes time to plan that future trip and have enough qualified drivers for the vans you are taking.

Any questions can be directed to Peggy Grater at 785-532-6397 or Lynn Salsbury 785-532-1719
