TRS Congratulates Recent Steersman Program Graduates

The 2020 class of employees completing the TRS Steersman Program recently graduated. Eight individuals are now set to advance to the pilot house. They completed the 18-month minimum requirement for working at Terral and the four weeks of license preparation. The 2021 class of 6 will begin their training in March. The Steersman program was initiated in 2005 and has had a huge impact on our boat operations. More than half of our wheelhouse personnel have come through the program, many starting on the deck.
