The two-day training program provides an overview of the federal agencies that regulate railroads, and includes a comprehensive review of 49CFR Parts 217, 218, 219, 225, 228, and 243. The training combines traditional presentation methods with interactive discussion using real world examples to round out the attendees’ understanding of complicated regulations and how they impact front line operations. The program agenda will cover Federal Regulations 101, Leadership Qualities, Part 217, Part 218, Part 219, Part 228, Part 225 and Part 243.
