Further to the success of the previous WCRT (World Congress on Rail Training) editions (over 200 participants from 40 countries (Asia Pacific, Africa, Europe, North America, South America and Middle East) attended the third WCRT in Lisbon in 2015), UIC together with its partners, DB Training, Learning & Consulting and SNCF, are pleased to announce the fourth UIC World Congress on Rail Training, which will be held at DB Akademie, Potsdam/Berlin, Germany, from 5 – 7 April 2017.

The World Congress on Rail Training 2017 is being organised at the initiative of the UIC Expertise Development Platform, which draws its expertise from the regional Rail Training Centre Networks (Europe, Asia, Middle East,.). Its main purpose is to enhance workforce development through sharing best practice in rail training across the entire industry.

The key congress aims are to:

  • Promote excellence in railway training through best practice models
  • Highlight research findings in this area which bring innovation and have practical application to the industry
  • Identify new challenges for training and training technologies
  • Provide a unique opportunity to share knowledge and experience amongst training professionals and managers

The congress is targeted at human resources and training directors, training executives, training and workforce development experts. The congress will be held in English, French and German.
