Center Holds Three Sessions at NTI Transit Trainers Workshop in Nashville
Posted April 2017
The Center delivered three well-received workshops during the 2017 National Transit Institute (NTI) Transit Trainers Workshop in Nashville, TN. On Monday, Instructional Design Program Manager, Julie Deibel-Pundt and Senior Instructional Design Associate, Amri Joyner delivered a “boot-camp” version of the Center’s Five-day Train-the-Trainer course. Participants gained insights into the principles of adult learning and techniques on how to deliver good training. Then on Tuesday, Center Program Manager Tia Brown partnered with Diane Jones of the Urban Institute to present on developing and promoting competency-based and hybrid model registered apprenticeships across five frontline occupations in the transportation industry. Later, Center Program Director, John Schiavone, presented on a competency-based Bus Apprenticeship Framework being developed for the Department of Labor.
Following the conference, John Schiavone stayed on in Nashville to lead a committee of bus maintainers and bus maintenance trainers from transit agencies across the country to move toward finalizing the Center’s work on the competency-based Bus Maintenance Apprenticeship Framework ahead of its submission to the Department of Labor.
