VTC Director Bob Noland together with Marc Weiner, Stephanie DiPetrillo, Andrea Lubin, and Sean Meehan have begun work on an assessment of the current and future training needs facing the transit industry. Specifically, the project objective is to:
- Identify and assess the current and future training needs of the transit industry
- Examine issues of employee retention and recruitment, as they relate to training
- Inform the work of those who conduct and support training of transit industry professionals, including the National Transit Institute and others
The team will collect information through listening sessions, focus groups, a national survey, and key informant interviews with transit industry professionals to determine transit staff training needs to satisfy current demand and to provide recommendations and guidance for fulfilling future workforce needs of this industry.
