Certificate in Railway Conductor


Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

Train to become a railway conductor and be responsible for moving, marshalling and switching rail cars and more with hands-on courses that cover operating procedures, handling of dangerous goods and railway safety.

The Railway Conductor (RRCD) program will prepare the student for a career in operations in the Canadian Railway industry. The student will learn in a variety of settings including classrooms, labs, a private mini rail yard (complete with track and rail cars), and visits to nearby industrial sites. Over the course of the program, the student will learn about the Canadian Railway Operating Rules (CROR) and the related instructions and processes.

Students will also learn operating procedures including train marshalling, handling of dangerous goods, documentation and all of the specific responsibilities of a conductor. Finally, you will learn using actual rail equipment about the mechanical components of rail cars including air braking systems and communication systems.

Currently, the railway industry is experiencing significant growth and there are increased demands for transportation and distribution of commodities and /or finished manufactured products. The high demand for our graduates is also the result of pressures brought on by high retirement rates as the demographics of an aging workforce influence the hiring rates and practices of the railways. The major railways have significant hiring and recruiting strategies in place for the next several years.

Is this the right fit for me?

Conductor graduates must have a strong orientation towards safety, as well as excellent verbal and written English, good planning, decision-making and communication skills to work in the rail industry. Railways operate 24-hours a day, 365 days-a-year.

The work of a conductor requires regular physical activity outdoors in all types of weather. Conductors need to be in good physical condition and able to lift heavy objects (up to 85 lbs.).

Applicants to the railway companies are expected to pass government-mandated medical examinations including testing for vision including colour, hearing acuity and drug screening. Applicants to railway jobs are also given security screening by the hiring railway. Persons with concerns should consult with the employment office(s) of the respective railway(s).

Personal security information may be obtained from the local police force for a fee. To gain employment in the rail industry as a conductor, the student is responsible for determining the minimum medical and physical standards required by individual rail companies. SAIT does not provide screening services for the purpose of meeting these standards.


After successfully completing this program, graduates will receive a SAIT certificate as a Railway Conductor.
