AN OUTLINE OF THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE OF ENGINEERING TRAINING ON CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS WITH EMPHASIS ON ROAD TRAINING

The history of engineering training is reviewed from the signal training program organized in 1955 (which includes electronics and is considered the most sophisticated on the continent) to the present time. Comments are made on future developments. A System Management Policy in 1963 authorized training for employees and an attempt was made to develop a training program. School locations were chosen with consideration to the population. The instructor staff, and the courses created by a six-man committee are reviewed. Roadmasters are sent to various additional course at various locations on the system. Choice of subjects and the manner of presentation are discussed and items of interest concerning the course are highlighted.
