SAFETY & TRAFFIC EDUCATION PROGRAM (STEP)
The Safety and Traffic Education Program (STEP) is designed for teachers desiring to obtain an 096-add-on (Safety and Traffic Education) to their teaching NCDPI educator license and/or paraprofessionals desiring to obtain a restricted license to teach driver education. This program, administered by the NCDPI Driver Education section, provides an opportunity for qualified candidates who successfully complete all components of the program to be a candidate for licensure.
The traditional cohort of the Safety & Traffic Education Program (STEP) utilizes a blended delivery model, a unique and comprehensive educational experience that combines the best of synchronous and asynchronous learning. In this innovative model, we have carefully designed a program that seamlessly integrates real-time interactions and self-paced activities to maximize your learning potential. The model incorporates various components such as live conferences, discussions, quizzes, assignments, and a practicum to facilitate effective learning outcomes and enable learners to demonstrate their competency, as well as compile artifacts for future use.
The modified cohort of the Safety & Traffic Education Program (STEP) utilizes an asynchronous delivery model, allowing learners to engage with the content and complete learning activities at their own pace and convenience while meeting the designated due dates. The model incorporates various components such as instructional videos, discussions, quizzes, and assignments to facilitate effective learning outcomes and enable learners to demonstrate their competency, as well as compile artifacts for future use.
PATHWAY TO 096
The program consists of two components: education and practicum. The education component includes an orientation and four courses. Before officially enrolling in the core courses, learners must pass the orientation successfully. Similarly, learners need to successfully complete the core courses before they can proceed to the practicum. At the conclusion of the practicum, candidates will submit the appropriate documentation to apply for the 096 certification.
