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:

  • The Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) Program and CTR  Law
  • Why CTR is needed and the benefits it provides
  • 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.

"Virtual" Basic Training

Basic Training is generally held twice a year, in the spring and fall, with a third training occasionally offered on an as-needed basis. Due to COVID-19 in-person meeting restrictions, we now offer a self-led "virtual" Basic Training.

The self-led training consists of two presentations: 

Once you have completed both presentations, contact us (see contact information below) to schedule a one-on-one virtual meeting to discuss your CTR program and to answer any questions.
