Pilot/Escort Vehicle Operator (P/EVO) Instructor Course

Starting 2017, the Pilot/Escort Vehicle Operator (P/EVO) Instructor Course, will become a three-day event that will guide the instructor through the materials and show them how to train pilot/escort vehicle operators to the standards set by the Washington State Pilot/Escort Oversight Committee.

Upon successful completion of this three-day session, which includes passing an open-book exam with a score of 80% or better, the instructor is qualified to train pilot/escort vehicle operators (P/EVOs) and issue the Washington State certification card.

Classes will be held on March 11–13 and September 16–18, 2019.
