NTI Develops Transit Maintenance Leadership Workshop

Sept. 29, 2015

The National Transit Institute (NTI) announced the development of the Transit Maintenance Leadership Workshop, which will be held Dec. 7-11, in Dallas. This new professional development opportunity was created specifically for senior-level public transit maintenance leaders. The workshop curriculum will support the development of leadership skill, explore strategic maintenance planning, facilitate the sharing of best practices, and build a network of transit maintenance professionals.

The workshop was created in response to an identified industry need that was supported through a survey of more than 250 transit professionals. The course was developed, and its curriculum shaped, by an advisory board comprised of transit General Managers, maintenance managers, and representatives of both the public and private sectors.
Raymond Melleady, managing director, North America for USSC Group, served on the board of advisors for the workshop development and will serve as an instructor for the program. Melleady noted the importance of this workshop as the transit industry strives to develop the next generation of transit maintenance leaders. “In addition to technical skill sets, maintenance managers today are expected to have strong administrative and people skills. They are expected and responsible to look beyond today’s problems and contribute meaningful solutions to the organizations' long-term strategy and vision. To that end, the maintenance leadership workshop is a timely investment for transit properties that want to invest in their future executive leadership.”
The Transit Maintenance Leadership workshop was developed by NTI in partnership with GannonConsult, supported by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and will be hosted by the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). NTI’s Paul Larrousse and GannonConsult’s Barbara Gannon and Lindsey Robertson will join him and other industry experts to teach the workshop.
The tuition for the five-day workshop will be $2,095 per participant and applications are being accepted through Oct. 23. Please see the NTI website for additional details.
