I work in operations for a transit agency and I am directly responsible for safety. However, I don’t seem to fit into the categories listed in the Federal Register Notice, should I participate in the Interim Provisions?

Initially, the interim training program will primarily focus on enhancing the technical competencies and capabilities of those persons responsible for direct safety oversight of rail fixed guideway public transportation systems (rail transit systems) and the Federal and State personnel who conduct safety audits of these systems. This approach recognizes the impact of recent bus and rail transit accidents and incidents that prompted the safety certification training requirements in MAP-21.1 However, many of the provisions of the interim program will also benefit personnel with bus safety oversight responsibilities; therefore, participation in applicable courses is encouraged.
