Transit Core Competencies

The Transit Core Competencies Curriculum (TC3) serves as a bridge, providing the critical connection in a pathway leading from general academic and personal competencies developed in school or through workforce development programs to specifically transportation and transit-focused training and education. Designed in a student and instructor-ready interactive and hands-on modular format that can be used in a variety of settings, TC3 helps prepare participants for entry into and success in early training pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs that provide the foundation for frontline careers in the industry. Building upon and strengthening both personal competencies (often called “soft skills”) and basic academic competencies in applied contexts, the TC3 modules provide an initial overview of the industry and of workplace practices and then focus on establishing and strengthening basic required competencies in transit-related technology and maintenance.

The Transportation Learning Center has implemented TC3 in partnership with local public transportation agencies, unions, schools/educational institutions and/or workforce development agencies.
