Driver Safety Training

Advanced Driving Courses - St. Cloud State University

A few Mound firefighters recently attended advanced driver training, specializing in emergency driving. "Everyone that took the course said it was one of the best courses they had taken, just because it was a lot of hands on driving, with some classroom," notes Mike McCarville, MFD Training Captain.

Larry Nadeau, Director of Outreach - MN Highway Safety & Research Center, Mike continued, "mentioned that they do driving courses for all ages...[and] the Youth / Novice driver course is great for families with new drivers and/or residents that just want to up their skills."

Here are a few courses we recommend, ranging from novice to emergency responder.
