Course information

What is covered in the course?

The GLP Instructor Course focuses on curriculum content and techniques for leading ICBC-approved driver education courses such as:

  • developing lesson plans that include a variety of instructional strategies
  • facilitating groups of adult learners in a classroom situation, and
  • assessing student progress throughout a course.

What I need to do to complete the course

How to prepare for the course

Here are things you can do to prepare yourself for taking the course:

  • Read the information and curriculum in Mapping a Safe Course and review Sections 5 and 6 of the Instructor Resource Kit — you'll receive these course materials on the first day of class.
