The objective of the Advanced Mechanical Training Program was to demonstrate worth of blue-collar training received by mechanics in Automotive Welding Techniques, Coach Electrical Systems and Coach Air-Conditioning. The average mechanic normally is not skilled or knowledgeable in electrical system maintenance and repair. Coach Electrical Systems have become even more sophisticated and complex in recent years, particularly with the addition of many electrical warning systems, safety features, and innovations such as electrical transmission systems. For these reasons, the District felt it necessary, with the cooperation of the Amalgamated Transit Union, Division 1277, to provide advanced mechanical training in areas where training could improve productivity.
