Prevost will lend its support to a new driving school that will train those individuals aspiring to take the driver's seat in an entertainer coach.
The Celebrity Bus Drivers Academy, founded by Chip Huffman and Tandy Rice, will offer its first session in early June in Nashville, Tenn.
The inaugural Academy course will be held at Prevost's Nashville facility, with instruction provided by its training technicians, technicians from the coach conversion industry and professionals from the entertainer coach leasing business, including veteran drivers, leasing agents and owners. A pre-conversion Prevost coach and a converted Prevost entertainer coach will be on hand to help students become familiar with the vehicles they may someday be driving.
The Academy will also utilize the Top Billing Driver Placement Agency to qualify participants for elite, highly sought-after driving positions in the entertainment industry.
