ATSSA launches virtual training courses
New option offered amid COVID-19 social distancing restrictions
In response to government guidelines requesting social distancing, ATSSA is now offering virtual training for two of its classroom courses.
Virtual training is now offered for the Traffic Control Technician (TCT) and Traffic Control Supervisor (TCS) courses, with the first one scheduled for April 13. ATSSA has adjusted both courses to meet the needs of individual states.
The national TCT and TCS courses are available to the following states, which currently accept online training: Alaska, Iowa, Indiana and Montana.
Adjustments to the training were made for Utah, Texas, Florida and North Carolina to meet their needs.
ATSSA also created virtual training for the Advanced and Advanced Refresher courses to meet Florida requirements.
Training Program Manager Jessica Scheyder said ATSSA is happy to work with other states to meet their specific criteria while switching from traditional classroom instruction to the virtual setting. Creation of the virtual training is designed to help companies stay on track with their training needs while addressing health and safety concerns from the novel coronavirus.
Registration is now open. Seating is limited, so a waitlist was also established in case the desired time slot is shown as full. ATSSA is evaluating options for expanding or adding classes to meet the needs of members.
Members wishing to utilize virtual training in their state should contact their state’s department of transportation to seek approval.
