Identifying Best Practices and Sharing Resources for Transit Technical Training

The objectives of this research are to: (1) document the best models of technical training programs serving U.S. and international transportation agencies, and related industries; (2) develop an electronic, sharable training resource catalog of available training materials; and (3) identify procedures for disseminating the training resources to the transit community at large. This research will be useful to transit managers and learning professionals. This research should be relevant to a cross-section of transit agencies. For the purpose of this research, technical training includes that for transit vehicle (bus and rail) operators, vehicle maintenance technicians, and facilities and infrastructure technicians.
