Development of Maintenance Training Module for Bus Transit Technicians

This project will develop and test an electrical/electronics training module for transit bus maintenance technicians, to be delivered on-line. CDX Global will adapt and modify its current multimedia content, which currently targets automotive technicians, specifically for transit bus maintenance technicians. This project will provide a model for the application of web-based training and testing both entry level and experienced bus maintenance technicians in modern electrical/electronic systems in transit buses. The objective will be to improve the level of transit technician training. This will be particularly valuable for transit agencies that don't have the resources to deliver such training. The focus on electrical/electronic subjects addresses an area of rapid technological change where significant training is required by new entrants and also by practicing technicians in transit agencies.
