SacRT Pilots National Rail Car Training Consortium Courseware

Posted September 2019


Pilot participants working together to troubleshoot problem with the communication system.

On August 20-22, four participants from Sacramento Regional Transit (SacRT) piloted three Communications courses developed by the National Rail Car Training Consortium; Course 110, Introduction and Overview (one day), Course 210, Inspection and Maintenance (half-day) and Course 310, Troubleshooting (half-day). Facilitating instruction was SacRT instructor Kerry Kopp with support from Doug Lusk and Scott Rutherford. Kerry did an outstanding job of complementing classroom instruction with hands-on demonstrations. When asked about the class, one participant expressed how valuable the instructional videos were to the understanding of new material.
SacRT delivered instruction with Consortium courseware - Participant Guides, Instructor Guide, PowerPoints and Assessments and supplemented with SacRT specific information, where applicable, to deliver a well-rounded and robust training.
