Employee Career Development Opportunities

Once hired, employees are encouraged to continue their education through in-company courses or outside classes. For some positions, especially in the craft and technician roles, employees must complete specific training modules to retain their jobs. In 2007, we implemented a new online tool to register for classes and track training records. Through this system, we recorded more than 17,400 employees taking nearly 500,000 hours of in-house training.
