Training for the Rail Industry

Essential telecoms training for the Rail Industry

Rail networks increasingly depend on efficient and reliable communications networks, without reliable communications systems networks could not operate safely. The demand for up-to-date technical skills for those involved in maintaining and developing transport communications systems continues to grow, investing in the right training to develop up-to-date skills is vital.

Our extensive portfolio of specialist training courses address the current and future communications network technologies deployed across rail networks globally including GSM-R, ERTMS/ETCS and FRMCS. They can be delivered as Classroom, Live Virtual Classroom, On-Demand Self-Study courses or as part of a comprehensive Rail Academy.
