Railroad Safety Training

NARS is an effort of BNSF Railway and Johnson County Community College to promote railroad safety.


Avoid dangerous accidents and costly fines and stay current with the training requirements of:

  • American Association of Railroads - AAR
  • Federal Railroad Administration - FRA
  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration - OSHA
  • BNSF Railway
  • your company and your insurance provider

NARS training is built around safe work practices, reinforcing that they must be applied to every job, every time. Employees who are trained to work properly will work safely. You will enjoy a safer workplace, lower insurance premiums and a more productive workforce.

With extensively equipped railroad job education facilities, NARS is uniquely qualified to provide hands-on training for virtually every industry craft, including mechanical, transportation, engineering and signal/telecom. Courses are taught by highly qualified instructors on the campus of Johnson County Community College (JCCC), or we can bring selected classes to your location.

Training at NARS offers a vast array of locomotive simulators to enhance learning results. By working in labs and simulators, trainees are honing skills in environments identical to actual job environments.
