Basic Training


Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC) Basic Training

Basic Training helps ETCs prepare for their new roles and responsibilities. ETCs must attend Basic Training within 1 year of being assigned.

After Basic Training you will have an understanding of:

  • How to become a successful ETC
  • ETC/worksite requirements
  • Enlisting management support

"Veteran” ETCs are welcome to attend for a refresher, whenever the training is offered.

The self-led training consists of two presentations: 

Once you have completed both presentations, contact Veronica Jarvis ( to schedule a one-on-one virtual meeting to discuss your CTR program and to answer any questions.
