ARC-Tech.Net Intern & Apprenticeship Railroad training program For Track Labor *Technicians
*Technicians is generally someone in a technological field who has a relatively practical
understanding of the general theoretical
principles of that field, e.g., as compared to an engineer in that field. They are generally much more versed in technique compared to the average layperson, or even the professional in that field. A mid-level of understanding of theory, and a high-level of technique, is generally mastered by the technician in order to become expert in a specific tool domain. This may be part of a larger (production) process. Hence, an audio technician, while not as learned in acoustics
as a physicist or an acoustical engineer, will generally know more than other studio personnel, including performers, and will be able to operate suitably designed sound equipment. Technicians may be classified as either skilled workers or semi-skilled workers."
Technicians may be found working in a variety of fields, and they usually have a job title with the designation 'technician' following the particular category of work. Thus a 'stage technician' is a worker who provides technical support for putting on a play, while a 'medical technician' is an employee who provides technical support in the medical industry or to the medical profession.
- An intern is
one who works in a temporary position with an emphasis on
on-the-job training rather than merely employment, making it
similar to an apprenticeship.
Interns are usually college or university students, but they can
also be other adults seeking skills for a new career.
- Student internships provide opportunities for students to gain experience in their field, determine if they have an interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, or gain school credit. An internship may be either paid, unpaid or partially paid (in the form of a stipend).
- A stipend is a form of payment or salary, such as for an internship or apprenticeship. Stipends are usually lower than what would be expected as a permanent salary for similar work. This is because the stipend is complemented by other benefits such as accreditation, instruction, work experience, food, accommodation, and personal satisfaction. Universities usually refer to money paid to graduate research assistants as a stipend, rather than as wages, to reflect complementary benefits.
receive hundreds of applications from people that have never
been on the railroad, wanting skills to become railroad workers
and who are willing to work as an intern. In order to make up
the difference between “On the Job Training” (OJT) and no
experience each applicant is willing to study the
60-Hour ARC-Tech.Net FRA 213 Track Safety Standards Training.
This is the same training given to Federal Railroad
Administration Track Safety Inspectors. Or the required FRA
214 Roadway Workplace Safety training,
- Short of actual
OJT ARC-Tech.Net trainees can’t possibly do more.
On the Job Training (OJT) is an important part of training.
ARC-Tech.Net provides OJT training though ARC-Tech.Net's
internship program with Railroad Contractors and Shortline
railroads. ARC-Tech.Net's OJT is 3 days of on the track work.
During the short time of OJT trainees learn how to show up to
the job, what to do once they are there, laying out tools and
equipment. Then at the end of the day they learn how to pick up
tools and equipment and do job site clean up. The OJT
includes lodging while training stipend. Applicants
agree to work
on track for three days to gain
experiences in the field. Should the Railroad Contractor or
Shortline railroad decide to keep the trainee the trainee will
be paid for that time and can stay employed with that company.
- The Relationship between
Contractor and Shortline railroad
- It is agreed that the
Railroad Contractors and Shortline railroads will extend an opportunity to actually experience the areas of their operations as stated to this participating intern. The
Railroad Contractors and Shortline railroads agrees to complete an Internship Evaluation form for the student and return the evaluation to the Internship Program Coordinator.
- Where stipend is involved, the final arrangement will be made between
Contractor or Shortline railroad
and student intern who sign the Internship Agreement Form and who are properly enrolled and working within the scope of their internship
and are covered by the Railroad
Contractors and Shortline railroads
insurance programs as temporary
- ARC-Tech.Net agrees to award internship certificate to intern upon satisfactory completion of the work experience and required reports. The grade will be determined by the Internship advisor.
