Course helps those considering a career as a conductor or engineer prepare for entry into well-paid training programs
Bucks County Community College, which has helped thousands switch career tracks through its Continuing Education Office, has partnered with NJ Transit to offer a Locomotive Engineer and Conductor Basic Training Program.
The 65-hour introductory course prepares students to enter a training program to become an engineer or conductor on a freight or passenger rail line. Once accepted, engineers can earn a training salary up to $53,000 a year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. After training and certification, which takes about two years, salaries range from $60,000 and higher.
