The Summit will offer three courses:


NTI Crisis Communication: This Train-the-Trainer course is designed to equip frontline employees and supervisory transit personnel to communicate effectively during an emergency to ensure proper response and recovery. Participants will be certified to deliver training to individuals in their organization.  


NTI Assault Awareness: This Train-the-Trainer course covers various ways to identify and prevent assault from occurring as well as recovery techniques. Attendees will be able to bring tactics back to their organization to reduce violence in transit systems.


TSA First Observer Class: Participants in this class will be certified to teach observe and report techniques at their transit system.


The classes are available both days of the summit. To receive all three certificates, attendees must attend both days. The classes are free of charge. Transit organizations are responsible for travel, food and lodging.


These classes are an excellent opportunity to for trainers to bring essential information back to operators in your organization. We hope you’ll

take advantage of this free training opportunity and certificate course in Petersburg.
