Development of Safety & Security Course Material

Over the past decade, FTA has established unique resources dedicated to furthering its goals in the critical areas of safety and security. This includes development and conduct of new courses and revisions to existing training courses and workshops. Because of the constantly evolving nature of safety and security problems, and priorities within the transit industry, there is a need for FTA to continually update existing courses, delete outdated ones, and develop new courses and revisions to existing training courses and workshops. Three new training courses will be developed and conducted: Transit Bus System Safety, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, and Safety Evaluations of Alternative Fuels. The project will further ensure the quality and delivery of the FTA safety and security training program, which is sustained by the support of available experts from the transit industry around the nation.
