Training for professionals – Empowering employees with the knowledge to help them progress

Customers are increasingly searching for sustainable, comprehensive training for their employees in the field of track systems in order to ensure that they have the knowhow required for maintaining their track.

We always strive to meet customer requirements. Occasionally, railway operators do not have the personnel resources to be able to send employees to our Academy for several days. Furthermore, there is a need for tailor-made training courses covering areas that are not necessarily included in our course book.

Within voestalpine Railways Systems, we combine a comprehensive knowhow in the areas turnout technology, rail technology, signaling and track superstructure and how to maintain them.
