The National Transit Institute will require proposers with experience in the subject matter, as well as experience in revising, updating, and delivering training programs.

A copy of the complete Request for Proposal #1509 can be obtained here under the category “Active Bids.” The login is RFP 1509 and the password is mLXzh6yH (case sensitive).
