Train-the-Trainer course provides instruction, coaching and feedback to prepare those who will deliver training.
Passenger Assistance Techniques is required by many transportation funding sources, including ODOT and insurance providers. This three-day course includes lecture, discussion, video clips, handouts, a hands-on practicum, and a certificate of completion is designed to give the transit professional the information and knowledge to train drivers.
