Training Calendar & Requests

Upcoming Trainings 

108th Purdue Road School Transportation Conference & Expo - March 15 & 16, 2022

The 108th Annual Purdue Road School will be held in-person at Purdue University, on March 15 – 16, 2022. Due to record student enrollment this year, and various construction projects, several meeting spaces in Stewart Center are unavailable for Road School sessions during the originally scheduled Road School week. Shifting the date one week later, to coincide with Purdue’s Spring Break Week when academic classes are not in session, provides opportunities to use all Stewart Center spaces, as well as additional classroom spaces in adjacent buildings.

The Road School planning team looks forward to safely returning to an in-person conference. We had over 3,100 registrants in 2020 and expect another record-breaking attendance year in 2022!

Additional Road School details will be sent in the following weeks.
