I am not sure about the REDI center in Georgia, but CSX does have a company store that you can order from online. Below is the link:

so I applied for csx as a freight conductor in north Baltimore Ohio a couple months ago got the interview the next day I got a call offering the position, took my drug test(which I know I passed) submitted my back ground check and took the strength test which was the last requirement its almost been two weeks since my strength test and haven't heard anything back is this normal? should I call someone or just keep waiting when I received the call offering the position the lady said that I should be looking to go to the redi center at the end of this month just making sure this sounds normal maybe im stressing to much thanks!

You have got a job but you are not officially hired until you have passed all the classes at REDI with an 85% average then finished OJT and have been marked up for 61 days then you are hired. At that time the union can help you. Until then if something happens CSX will pull your application and you are fired.

I wouldn't take a dog to redi, you will have enough to worry about while you are there. If you don't have someone else to take care of the dog you have some tough decisions to make about this career.

I received my email verification on April 14, 2014. I was advised that someone will contact me soon for REDI training. I noticed that a class started on April 7th. Am I going to have to wait 6 weeks, or do they run multiple classes? Additionally, how difficult is the REDI training?
