Admission Requirements - Railroad Programs

Before pursuing a career with the railroad, you should meet the eligibility criteria and possess the attributes required of a railroad worker. This is not an employment opportunity. This is strictly an educational opportunity.


You must be at least 18 years old. You must possess a high school or general education diploma (GED).

You must pass a hearing and vision test. Your acceptance letter will provide more information on these tests.

Once your application has been processed by the JCCC Admissions office, the NARS administrative office will send you paperwork to complete your enrollment. Please complete and return the acceptance form portion of the documents and fax the form to 913-469-2524.

If limited space is exceeded with confirmed applicants, you will be notified and invited to attend on the next start date.
