Engineer: In charge of operating the locomotive from the engine. (Class time: 5 hours, Hands-on operational time: as needed)
You’re in charge of how long this training takes. When you sign up, we’ll have you come to our location and do a walk-through to introduce you to our crew and our equipment. You will be given an overview and books to take home with you. If you prefer, we can send you PDF versions of the booklets instead. We will send you the first level’s work and you can come in for your exam whenever you’re ready.
The course is a mixture of online and in-class work, as well as onboard training.
For each level there is an exam. Don’t worry—they’re all open-book, so you will always have your manual there just in case. It’s as simple as that! Exams are held at one of our locations and are supervised by our certified teachers.
