ASLRRA Training Seminar: FRA Engineer / Conductor (Part 240-242) and Railroad Operating Rules (Part 217)

May 17-18, 2022
Aloft Nashville West End, Nashville, TN

Join representatives from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and ASLRRA for a two-day training seminar covering Part 240-242 Engineer / Conductor Training and Part 217 Railroad Operating Rules. Hear directly from the regulatory experts about what is required in these programs and what changes, if any, Part 243 requires. In 2021, an FRA final rule harmonized Part 240 and 242 – attendees will learn what was harmonized and what requirements changed for the railroads. Additionally, updates have been made to all three ASLRRA template programs, and these updates will be reviewed and discussed to educate members. Attendees will also have an opportunity to participate and ask questions during interactive discussions with experts from both FRA and ASLRRA. Space is limited – please register early!
