Accreditation Program

​NJSBCA Accreditation Program

The New Jersey School Bus Contractors Association (NJSBCA) membership recognizes the need to maintain the highest levels of training, education, compliance, and ethical best practices in the way we each contractor conducts business.

To assist members to stay up to date and to make public an expression of that dedication to professionalism, the NJSBCA developed a certification curriculum that, upon completion, will confer documented recognition of the individual contractor’s serious commitment to these criteria. NJSBCA aimed to have the process be rigorous enough that it assures member’s customers, as well as the public, of our intent to set and meet the highest standards obtainable in our industry.

Completion of this course will result in receiving a certificate that will distinguish your business practices from other contractors, that may not meet these higher standards; standards which we believe should be expected of any company entrusted with the important job of transporting our children. 

As part of the initiative, NJSBCA will then ask contractors to share (and submit) this professional standards certificate with bids, when pursuing other business opportunities, with insurance companies, NJMVC, and school district officials when returning signed contracts. All this to establish interest and credibility in this new certification. 

The final goal is to have this certification recognized by the State and for it to become a factor in determining a responsible, responsive bid. The curriculum will be available to all interested contractors.
