Focusing on the rapid changes in the surface transportation maintenance and operations workforce. Factors such as increasing retirement rates, downsizing staff, recruiting and retaining qualified employees, shifting responsibilities, and expanding the use of advanced technologies are influencing these changes. This webinar will examine two social factors and two groups of potential workers that have not been fully engaged in maintenance and operations career path opportunities.
The webinar will explore STEM learning in programs using a transportation lens through informal educational settings. It will build off of the findings from the 2015 National Research Council’s report on productive STEM programs in out-of-school settings.
APTA has released the National Transit Curriculum, which was developed as a semester-long course by an advisory committee comprised of representatives from public transit agencies, private sector firms, educators and trade associations to increase understanding and awareness of the industry.
