Training sessions on high-speed systems

Launched in 2004, the annual UIC Training Seminar on High-Speed Systems (THSS) have been attended by more than 300 Trainees to date.
This successful program includes high level contents due to the important contribution of eminent Speakers from around the world, and thanks to exchanges made during the session’s discussions and networking.
These Training Sessions - divided in two levels - offer an overall insight into the technical, commercial and management aspects of High-Speed Systems.

THSS Level I consists of a series of theoretical sessions and a technical visit, all over one week in Paris.
The aim of THSS Level II is to go more in-depth on the discussion with the help of a specific software tool “High-Speed Planner 4.0” especially designed to simulate the implementation of a high-speed line from A to B, held also over one week in Madrid.


  • Provide an accurate and comprehensive overview of the High-Speed System;
  • Provide Managers with all the information needed to facilitate decision making on the subject of High-Speed Rail;
  • Foster exchanges of experience and information about the latest developments in the field.


Managers, Strategy Experts, Decision Makers, Economists and new Staff Members


  • The Training Session is targeted at persons interested in acquiring a comprehensive overview of the High-Speed System;
