Railroad Conductor Training Program Application and Enrollment

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.

  • Mandatory Eligibility Requirements – informational reference for those seeking a career in the railroad industry.
  • Attributes – successful railroad workers should be willing and able to complete six weeks of full-time training without interruption at the National Academy of Railroad Sciences located on the Johnson County Community College campus in Overland Park, Kan.
  • You must pass a hearing and vision test. Your acceptance letter will provide more information on these tests.
