  • Seminar participants do need not to have in-depth knowledge of any specific subject relating to HSR.
  • Previous attendance to THSS-Level 1 is recommended but not necessary
  • Attendance at ALL sessions is therefore mandatory


The High Speed Planner is a didactic tool especially designed as a complement to be used during the Second Level of the Training on High Speed Systems. This simulation will help the participants to have a better understanding of all the elements involved in a HSS planning and how each decision affects the whole system.
