According to LA Metro, Nat’l Signals Training Consortium Courseware is “Well Designed”

Posted February 2019


At the end of 2018, LA Metro piloted Signals Training Consortium Course 104: Introduction to Highway Grade Crossings . The course was taught over two sessions to 13 signal students new to the industry.
According to the trainer at LA Metro, the course went very well: “The material served as a thorough introduction to the control circuits and equipment used at a typical highway crossing. The addition of the regulatory information is also very informative. The course was used as a replacement for the first day of our regular crossing lesson and will be an effective addition for introducing the students to the equipment they will be learning about.”

Pre- and Post-test scores show an average knowledge gain of 85%. The instructor said that “the improved scores are evidence that the course is well designed and the information conveyed is easily absorbed by the students.”
