FTA-Sponsored Training Courses
This page provides information on FTA-sponsored training delivered by the Transportation Safety Institute as of October 8, 2020.
In light of the extraordinary operational challenges presented by the COVID-19 public health emergency, the FTA has issued a Notice of Enforcement Discretion stating that FTA will refrain from taking enforcement action pursuant to 49 U.S.C. § 5329(g) and the FTA Master Agreement (26) (October 1, 2019) until August 21, 2022, against any FTA recipient subject to the PTSCTP regulation that is unable to certify that it has met the requirements of the regulation. Notwithstanding the Notice’s exercise of enforcement discretion, FTA encourages affected recipients, and individuals designated under the program, to continue to work toward meeting PTSCTP requirements to the extent practical under the current circumstances caused by the COVID-19 public health emergency.
