This certificate is designed to prepare the student for an exciting and well-paying career as a railroad signalman by exposure to the basic information and skills necessary to perform the assigned duties of a signalman in a safe and professional manner.
Signaling plays a vital role in railroad operations. As signaling technology has increased in complexity, so has the need for a more qualified employee.
