The Florida Department of Transportation’s Statewide Transit Training and Technical Assistance Program managed in partnership with the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) have teamed up with the Federal Transit Administration’s technical assistance center for workforce development, the Transit Workforce Center (TWC) to host an Apprenticeship Academy, January 30-31, 2024, at CUTR in Tampa, Florida. The Apprenticeship Academy is intended to assist Florida agencies with existing apprenticeships, as well as those with a serious interest in developing their own apprenticeship programs for transit operators and/or technicians.

Learn more about the Apprenticeship Academy.

The Apprenticeship Academy will accept a maximum of 30 participants, in order to ensure a quality experience for all. Because apprenticeship programs are jointly run, your agency should have representatives from management and the frontline workforce (or, in a union environment, union leaders familiar with the work).
