The Center on Educator Preparation and Effectiveness (CEPE) was recently awarded two Oregon Department of Transportation grants totaling $415,000 to increase the number of qualified driver education instructors in Oregon. The grants will focus on coordinating traffic safety education classes, certifying over 300 driver education instructors, and providing support for curriculum, policy and a web presence.

In addition, the $415,000 will be used to plan and host the annual Pacific Northwest Driver & Traffic Safety regional conference and revise the curriculum which is used to teach teens in driver education classes, candidate instructors in TSE classes and online continuing education courses offered by Chemeketa Community College.
