“NARS definitely gave me a leg up in the training phase of my employment. GCOR rules testing and initial yard experience were greatly enhanced due to attending NARS. NARS was just a beginning, just a drop in the bucket, to the mountain of information and procedures to learn, but definitely worth the time and effort I put into it.”
NARS training can help alleviate any concerns about the proper operation of your signal systems.
Taught by experienced railroad professionals who conduct similar training for the Federal Railroad Administration’s signal inspectors, our courses prepare your maintenance forces to install, maintain, troubleshoot, repair, and test all signal systems.
We teach the work skills required for work as a signalman, including basic knowledge of electricity and electronics, relay logic, highway-grade crossing warning systems, standard test and inspection methods, and exposure to the latest railroad signaling technologies.
Students work in an error-forgiving lab environment on the same equipment they install and maintain in the field, including signals, electronic switches, and computer equipment. Training is conducted using traffic control, grade crossing, automatic block signal system and automatic interlocking simulators, and track circuit simulators.
Today’s railroads are leaders in the use of advanced telecommunications technology.
