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.
Joint ASLRRA/FRA seminars cover almost all of the aspects you will need to keep the short line industry at the cutting edge of transportation. In 2013, ASLRRA will be hosting, together with the FRA, three track safety standards training sessions. The session times and dates will be as follows:
- June 5 - 6 - Intercontinental Kansas City at the Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri
- September 17 - 18 - Silver Legacy Resort in Reno, Nevada
- December 10 - 11 - Sheraton BWI Airport in Baltimore, Maryland (PLEASE - Note the change from the Four Points by Sheraton BWI Airport)
