Training and Development

Let us teach you all you need to know

We believe that training people is one of the most effective ways of improving the safety, reliability and efficiency of the railway. This is why SigmaRail offers state-of-the-art training and development programmes, covering all the aspects and major topics requested by railway stakeholders.

Main-line Railway Signalling We offer a range of programmes that meet national and European standards of main line signalling systems, such as the European Train Control System (ETCS/ERTMS) or several national train protection and warning systems. Programmes cover the whole development from introduction to advanced training in ETCS baseline 2 and 3.
Urban Railway Signalling Our urban railway signalling programmes develop people for a better understanding and effective management of CTBC (Communications-based train control) solutions. The course will increase students´ awareness and knowledge in concepts like moving blocks and train control over communications, enabling people to face any eventuality.
Advance Railway Safety Systems Safety is utterly critical to railway services providers. That is why we believe that every user of a railway system should be trained on this matter. Our courses cover safety on both urban and mainline systems.
