Starting July 1, 2014, NAPT is pleased to offer a new addition to our certification program – a Certificate of Special Needs Transportation (CSNT). The program builds upon the SNT Endorsement program, which was created to encourage individuals involved in school transportation to enhance their knowledge about transporting students with disabilities and promote excellent leadership skills for the community of transportation personnel serving children of all ages with special needs.

Please note: Beginning July 1, 2014 NAPT will no longer be accepting SNT Endorsement applications. Those professionals looking to distinguish themselves in the Special Needs Transportation arena and are not previously enrolled in the program can now pursue their Certification in Special Needs Transportation.
