Innovative Training for Today’s Transportation Professional

The Transit Safety and Security Division was established in 1976 in direct support of the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) mission to provide economical, timely, state-of-the-art training and educational opportunities to the transit industry. The division assists FTA in meeting its federal training mandate by developing, managing and delivering innovative instruction through instructor-led course offerings and e-learning technologies.

We serve as a steward for FTA, responsible for equipping transportation employees with the core competencies they need to operate, maintain, and manage public transportation systems. All training is designed specifically to meet the needs of today’s changing transit industry, its regulations and safety best practices.
