Summary

The National Transit Institute (NTI), in partnership with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), is offering a short online video course titled “Assault Awareness and Prevention for Transit Operators”. Intended for transit operators, road supervisors, transit police, supervisors, and labor representatives, this course has the following objectives:

  1. Define assault and identify operator assault incidents
  2. Recognize key vulnerability factors
  3. Practice communication and response skills
  4. Discuss the value of reporting incidents

The course has three modules, covering topics like defining assault and recognizing operator vulnerability, using skills and strategies to prevent assaults, and seeking assistance. Registration for the video course is here.

This training can be valuable for transit and shared-mobility operators across the United States, especially since transit operators are now tasked with enforcing the new federal mask requirement.
