Webinar Addresses Workforce Changes:

More Webinars to Follow


The first in a series of Webinars on the implementation of CSA 2010 and its impact upon FMCSA’s workforce took place August 18.  Division Administrators from CSA 2010 test states discussed changes and answered questions from their peers including:

  • Will training on the new CSA 2010 safety measurement system and new interventions processes be provided?  ANSWER: Yes. Training for Field Staff and State partners will begin next year.
