Graduates of Princess Tours' Commercial Driver Training Program now qualify for three credits from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF).
"Princess is proud to be the first tour company in Alaska to offer college credit for our commercial driving program," said Bruce Bustamante, Princess' vice president of community and public affairs. "Public/private partnerships work well for the whole Alaskan community," said Michelle Bartlett, director of UAF's summer sessions.
Princess started its commercial driver program 15 years ago and it has grown from a small training program to a state-of-the-art school that includes a web-based manual covering everything from vehicle inspections to safe driving and technical trouble shooting of a motorcoach. Classroom instruction includes presentations and training videos all developed and produced by Princess.
The UAF credit is for ABIS 267, the transportation and logistics management course in the Applied Business Department.
