The training programs will have a uniform curriculum, with dedicated local staff at each location. The significant and ongoing investment in this program and these facilities is designed to strengthen CN's safety culture and prepare a new generation of safety-conscious railroaders.
"Our elevated training program reflects CN's commitment to Operational and Service Excellence," Mongeau said. "We hope this training program and these centres will ultimately become a benchmark for the railroad industry."
