ATTAIN and Apprenticeship

Introducing ATTAIN

The Transit Workforce Center launches ATTAIN, the American Transit Training and Apprenticeship Innovators Network.

The American Transit Training and Apprenticeship Innovators Network (ATTAIN), run by the Transit Workforce Center (TWC), is a peer network created for transit agencies and labor unions to explore new apprenticeship programs or enhance existing programs for their frontline workforce. Through ATTAIN, the TWC will promote apprenticeship, advance frontline worker training, facilitate peer exchange, and provide technical assistance to agencies and unions interested in developing apprenticeship programs for their frontline workforce.

To further the mission of the TWC, ATTAIN will be composed of four committees:

  • Bus Operator Apprenticeship Committee
  • Bus Maintenance Apprenticeship Committee
  • Railcar, Signals, and Traction Power Apprenticeship Committee
  • Facilities and Elevator/Escalator Maintenance Apprenticeship Committee
