Railway training centres network

The Railway companies are confronted with important challenges in the future years, which will affect the competencies and skills of railway staff. Therefore, the training providers and HR partners have the task to provide services that enable the railway companies to keep step with these challenges by meeting the current and future training and workforce development needs. The Railway Training Centres Network is a working group composed by global training providers and HR experts, which aims at enhancing workforce development through sharing best practice in rail training, talent and development across the entire industry.
