Putting Your Military Training to Work

The railroad industry recognizes that, thanks to their military background, veterans make excellent potential employees. In fact, many of the skills acquired while serving closely match the needs of today’s railroads. Military personnel have experience working in fast-paced, team environments and demanding conditions, and they understand what it takes to work at all hours and in differing shifts. They also typically know how to work around machinery and industrial vehicles in a safety-conscious manner, making a career with the railroads a perfect fit.

NARS can provide all the training you need to transition into a civilian position in the rail industry. Our programs are accredited and, for veterans, your benefits are applicable.

“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.”
