Course Content

This Recertification course is only available to existing, provincially licensed, AMTA PDIC instructors. It is a one-day refresher course taught in either a classroom or held virtually.

Should they be required, distance learning courses would be facilitated in real-time by a qualified AMTA instructor and participants access the course and materials via an online conferencing tool (presently, Microsoft Teams) using a computer or device equipped with sound and video (camera) capabilities

In order to renew their Alberta Transportation instructor’s license, the instructor must have taught 72 hours in the previous 24-month period. Failure to meet this requirement may result in an observation, by a representative of the Driver Education and Enforcement Standards department of Alberta Transportation, of the instructor teaching a portion of the PDIC course.

Admission Requirements or Prerequisites

Pre-requisites for this course are:

  • Less than 7 demerit points (provide commercial abstract)
  • No driver licence suspension that expired within 2 years

  • Has delivered at least 1 PDIC course per year

Development Stakeholders
