SkillsPass is a software as a service solution that is hosted on Bluedrop Learning Network’s cloud platform.

These certifications are then available to the Learner, the Sponsor and in some cases other organizations who are designated as Sponsors within SkillsPass.

I understand SGI’s basic eligibility for Class 1 driver licensing in Saskatchewan.
I understand that completion of the online portion of Saskatchewan’s Class 1 driver training does not guarantee eligibility for a Saskatchewan driver’s licence.
I understand that the online training application to be used for Saskatchewan’s Class 1 driver training is owned and operated by an independent entity (Bluedrop Learning Networks) that will be responsible for the collection, use, and storage of my customer, payment, and training record information. Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) has entered into an agreement with Bluedrop Learning Networks (BLN) to provide the Class 1 driver training.
I agree that my customer and training information will be provided to SGI from BLN for the purpose of updating SGI’s information and database. The customer and training information may include, but is not limited to, my driver’s licence number, personal information, completed courses, or training record.
I agree to receive correspondence specifically related to the online training. This may include SMS text message, emails, and mailed letters. All electronic correspondence complies with Canada’s Anti-spam legislation.
I understand that I have one year to complete Saskatchewan’s online Class 1 driver training or I will be required to restart the training from the beginning and pay again, regardless of how far along in the training process I was.
I understand that completing Saskatchewan’s online Class 1 driver training is only a portion of the required training. If I haven’t yet done so, I must also complete the required in-yard and in-cab training with an SGI certified training school.
