Current Entry Requirements

Technical operations trainers need a considerable amount of work-related skill, knowledge, or experience gained through on-the-job training or vocational training. Employers prefer trainers to have seven to ten years of experience in the department where the training takes place. They also look for licenses and certifications relevant to the job group for which training is conducted.

Applicants for this position may be required to undergo a background investigation and/or complete a drug screen. Management or supervisory positions associated with vehicle operations and potentially all positions with public Transit agencies may also require the applicant to hold or obtain a commercial driver's license (CDL). To qualify for a CDL, applicants must pass a knowledge test on rules and regulations, and then demonstrate in a skills test that they can operate a commercial-scale vehicle safely. The Department of Transportation keeps a national database of all driving violations incurred by CDL holders, and a state may not issue a license to a person who has already had a license suspended or revoked in another state. Drivers may hold only one license at a time, and must surrender all other driver's licenses, upon receiving their new CDL. Information on how to apply for a CDL and each type of endorsement can be obtained from state motor vehicle administrations and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
