Conductor Certification

On Nov. 9, 2011, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) published the final conductor certification rule as mandated by the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008.

Conductor Certification is intended to reduce incidents and improve safety.  The rule requires railroads to have a formal program for certifying and training conductors, thus determining job competency. Accordingly, Union Pacific has developed a conductor certification program that will impact on all train, engine and yard (TE&Y) employees.
