Rail Training & Consulting is a

company founded by railroaders.

For over two decades, we have provided consulting services, on-site and online training, as well as compliance tracking software that transforms business for Class 1 railroads, short lines and plant rail operations. Every product and service we offer is designed to do one thing: Make your operations more efficient while keeping your employees safe.

What We Do: We Work For You

On-Site Training & Consulting

Don’t get railroaded into a training program that won’t work for you. Many industry training programs are designed with large, Class 1 railroads in mind, making them too expensive and inefficient for smaller properties and plant rail operations.

Whether you’re running a large railroad or a plant that gets a couple of cars per day, RTC’s training and consulting services can meet your needs. We offer customized, on-site training that meets all local and federal requirements while keeping the scale of your rail operations in mind. We won’t come to your site with a canned training program that doesn’t truly fit your operations. Our certified safety and operations instructors are industry professionals and experts with real, on the ground experience at all levels of the railroad business—which means they understand the challenges and the realities that you face.

Rail Training & Tracking Software

In addition to our expert on-site training and customized consulting services, we have also developed revolutionary software for the rail industry—giving you a safe and simple way to do everything from FRA compliance tracking to track control.

A premiere Learning Management System (LMS), used to administer training, centrally manage your company policy and procedure manuals and maximize job performance.


A Federal Railroad Administration compliance tracking program. Simplify and streamline day-to-day management of FRA regulations, operational efficiency testing and internal human resource objectives for your railroad operators.


An FRA compliant Hours of Service tracking program. Electronically capture, record and report all hours of duty time, eliminating hours of tedious hand calculations. Reports available for daily service logs, monthly hours of service records, payroll claims codes and more.
