Six-Week Apprentice Training Program

This accelerated and comprehensive program is recognized by a leading labor organization.

Our apprentice program is delivered in three separate two-week sessions. Session One is entry-level training that has a focus on the basics of railway signaling. Session Two is our mid-level course that builds on previously learned skills and knowledge, and introduces new topics. Session Three is our advance-level course, and completes the program with an emphasis on microprocessor-based systems.
