Started in late 2015, the National Rail Car Training Consortium has moved forward with its mission to create standardized national training courseware for rail car technicians. The development team composed of over 40 rail car maintenance subject matter experts (SMEs) from 18 member agencies and unions from across the country along with instructional systems designers from the Transportation Learning Center, design curriculum and courseware for the rail and transit industry. By joining the Rail Car Training Consortium, agencies improve technician skills and prepare for new fleet implementation or upgrade internal capacity to refurbish existing fleet. To date, the Consortium has created 35 courses.
