PDA has qualified instructors for classroom and on-the-lot training, who are supplemented by qualified road instructors. Instructional methods are by lecture, audio-visual, practical application and experience. Modern classroom facilities and training areas provide pleasant surroundings for learning. All students are expected to progress steadily throughout the entire program making some improvement during each week of their training. School instructors and the administration monitor their progress. Classroom, lot training, and over-the-road instruction will be tested. The student will receive a satisfactory rating upon achievement of a passing grade on written classroom examinations. Tests are graded on a percentage basis with scores of 70% or greater considered passing. Performance objectives regarding lot training and over-the road training will be evaluated by the instructor or designee using a minimum competency checklist. Students will be given an opportunity for re-examination should they fail an examination or test.
