For years the America's Best program has offered training and a skills challenge for the technicians and inspectors in the school bus industry. By bringing this unique event together with NAPT's Conference, participants have access to the premier school transportation conference in the nation. In addition to hands-on training through the America's Best program, we offer dozens of different workshops specifically designed for technicians and inspectors! Plus, participants have an opportunity to connect with all of the vendors involved in NAPT's Trade Show.
