SCRTTC Receives NTI Award

The Southern California Transit Training Consortium (SCRTTC) in Los Angeles recently received the National Transit Institute’s (NTI) Achievements in Transit Training Model Program Award for its National Innovative Transit Training Learning Model.

“SCRTTC was conceived over a decade ago by a grassroots effort of transits in Southern California that were mandated by the South Coast Air Quality Management District to be the first in the country to procure, maintain, operate and repair low/zero emission buses,” said SCRTTC Chair Tommy Edwards, chief operating officer, SunLine Transit Agency, Thousand Palms, CA.

The consortium has developed more than 65,000 hours of transit training to more than 4,500 participants to date, preparing public transit workers to meet the current, rapidly advancing and future technological needs.

SCRTTC also recently completed an FTA Innovative Transit Workforce Development Program that allowed the consortium to develop and begin offering a distance education program for public transit technicians.
