What Do Our Learners Say?

"The course gave me an opportunity to research, translate and process the fundamental principles of what it takes to achieve reliable rail operations safely. The course tutors always made themselves available and were very approachable.  I found the course challenging, informative and relevant whilst applying current railway industry best practice."

“You made the course enjoyable and it did not feel like just reading notes and answering questions. I have learnt a lot about rail operations and definitely see the value in this course.”

“The course gave me a holistic view of rail operations and how every discipline of rail applies to operations.  It has broadened my view and understanding of Rail Operations.”
