During the week of March 7th – 9th, one I.A.M. & eight TWU C.R.E.S.T Associate Instructors from various stations across the country representing Southwest Airlines & American Airlines, participated in a Trainers Exchange held in Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas. This exchange afforded trainers the opportunity to discuss and share new and existing ideas about the training occurring at various airline industry sites.

Currently, IAM CREST Associate Instructors provide site-specific training for workers in the airline industry who handle dangerous goods by air. The training is provided by a grant funded by the DOT Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration.
