The Network is coordinated and administered by CTED. All eight trainers have taken a three-day Passenger Assistance: Train the Transit Trainer workshop at UWM, and receive updated training and materials from UWM on a regular basis.
The Network coordinator works with you to determine your specific training needs. Based on this assessment, instructors are assigned to the session and a curriculum is tailored to your needs.
This workshop is largely funded by the Wisconsin Rural Transportation Assistance Program. The driver's portion of the cost is $25. The fee covers instruction and materials. The course is already largely subsidized by RTAP, however, 80 percent of the cost to host or to attend the workshop can be reimbursed by the RTAP scholarship fund.
