Throughout the year, the ASLRRA, in conjunction with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) provides numerous training seminars. These seminars allow employees of Class II and III railroads the opportunity to increase their knowledge of important aspects of the everyday operation of your railroad.
The ASLRRA and FRA will be conducting a series of Hazardous Materials Rules and Handling Training Seminars in 2014, that will provide you with all of the tools you need to comply with federal regulations. Over the course of two days, FRA personnel, including Karl Alexy, Staff Director, and Dennis Campbell, Hazardous Materials Trainer, will provide attendees with a review of hazardous materials rules and describe how these regulations pertain to your railroad. Seminars in Hazardous Materials Rules and Handling will be held at the following places:
- June 3-4 - Kansas City, Missouri
- September 24-25 - Reno, Nevada
- November 19-20 - Baltimore, Maryland
