Now with the enhancement of international corridors in Asia, increased volume of transborder freight and passenger traffic, grown cooperation, a question of homologation of requirements concerning general profile of job positions of different categories of staff of railways has not yet been solved. It makes unknown the competences of interlocutors in international technical rail technical contacts and transactions, prevents from using personnel of other railways in trans-border traffic, and particularly complicates joint bilateral or multilateral training programs. We can see now an absence of detailed descriptions even at a national level (or there are only limited ones), different approaches to skills and competences description; different education systems; different recruitment requirements for education and skills in different countries. In some other industries this problem is being solved. E.g. EU project of tuning of core competences in higher education has been realized since 2000, European qualification framework is aimed to relate different countries national qualifications systems to a common European reference framework (8 levels with different requirements for education, but not all the professions listed and not all the countries have set up national QF), there are official job descriptions at national level. In railways in Europe a common description of driver qualification and training is set, there are joint master programs (Austria + SUI + GER; RUS + POL + LET + UKR + FRANCE +…), national qualification description systems (especially for safety related jobs) exist in many countries.
If project well be realized, then at international level it will permit to develop more actively international educational programs of the UIC, to set up requirements for international employees and to train them, to enhance transborder transportation, to share international expertise in training in the spheres which are not nationally specific.
