TTCU/IAM Advanced Transportation Training continues to be a popular Advanced Trade in Job Corps. Our training program looks to the future as the transportation industry, especially in the freight railroad industry, will continue to need skilled workers. To meet employer demand and required industry skills, the TCU/IAM Job Corps Program is constantly refining and updating our industry-standard training. Hands-on training at all eight of our program locations continues to be a major focus of our training process. Hard-skills training, through the utilization of tools and equipment found in the transportation industry, is implemented at three of our training locations where we have an established rail-mechanical program.

Our program will endeavor to bring new employment opportunities across the nation to our students in the areas of airlines, passenger rail, freight rail, and barge lines.

We would like to thank our wonderful employer partners for the strong relationships we have established over the years. We are most appreciative of the consideration they give our graduates in offering them jobs in high-wage, high-growth entry-level positions. We are proud to be a part of the Job Corps community as we work together to build a strong American workforce for tomorrow.

TCU/IAM's Training Services Department administers the Job Corps Advanced Transportation Training at eight facilities nationwide. Overseeing the work of the TCU/IAM Training Services Department is National Secretary-Treasurer Stan Boyd.
