NTI Assault Awareness and Prevention for Transit Operators Course

FTA offers resources to support transit agencies as they work toward implementing the Federal mask requirement while ensuring the safety of transit operators. With our partner, the National Transit Institute (NTI), FTA provides training for transit bus operators on assault awareness and prevention. 

The virtual Assault Awareness and Prevention for Transit Operators (Direct Delivery) course provides transit bus operators with prevention strategies necessary to reduce the likelihood of assault incidents. More information about this course is available here. An abbreviated video recording of the course is also available.

The virtual Assault Awareness and Prevention for Transit Operators (Train the Trainer) course is designed to provide transit agency instructional staff with the support necessary to deliver the Assault Awareness and Prevention course within their agencies. Each registered participant will receive an electronic instructor package that will include an instructor guide, course slides, instructor notes, and the participant workbook. More information about the Train the Trainer course is available here.

Please visit NTI’s website for course schedules and registration information.
