Employer Benefits

TCU/IAM Job Corps works closely with employers and the Transportation Communications International Union/International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (TCU/IAM) to develop relevant course materials and on-the-job training for students through internships and on-the-job-skills education. Students hone their trade while employers provide the final training.

The TCU/IAM Advanced Training Program places students who complete the program in a wide range of transportation positions such as operations clerks, yard clerks, reservation sales agents, customer service representatives, on-board service attendants, conductor trainees, and other transportation industry positions. TCU/IAM students who complete the program are also placed as clerk typists, data entry operators, word processors and other office-related positions with financial institutions, communications companies and various governmental agencies.

When a student is job ready and desires to apply for any transportation positions that are available, TCU/IAM arranges for employment interviews. If the transportation job requires moving to a new city, TCU/IAM and Job Corps can offer the student some assistance in relocating.

Contact a TCU/IAM Advanced Training representative today to find out all the advantages of the TCU/IAM Job Corps training program.
