Reggie Bunner, a manager in the Public Service Commission's transportation enforcement division, has been honored by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's National Training Center as the first-ever hazardous materials training programs instructor of the year.
The National Training Center serves as the focal point for the development and delivery of motor carrier safety training to enhance the capabilities of participating federal, state and local government officials.
Each year the NTC provides training to more than 10,000 students nationwide.
In selecting Bunner, officials gave weight to his impact on the development and revision of the training materials, the number of classes taught and the number of times an instructor has volunteered to teach. Over the past year, Bunner taught 14 hazardous materials classes for the NTC and volunteered almost twice as much as any other instructor.
Bunner has been a PSC transportation enforcement officer since 1992. He also serves as a regional chairman for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's cooperative hazardous materials enforcement development conference.
