The rail network of the UK is set for a transformational change to being a digital railway. This will enable the network to significantly increase capacity, customer choice and resilience against failures at reduced cost.
Network Rail have ambitious plans to implement the Digital Railway by the application of ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) to future resignalling projects of major routes.
Inevitably, this will mean that a UK railway signal engineer can no longer conveniently ignore this subject – it is coming to a railway project near you, soon!
To the newcomer, the specifications for ERTMS can seem to be a jungle of generic euro-jargon, very difficult to relate to conventional UK railway signal engineering practice.
Our Digital Railway training courses will help you to understand this future change of technology, and how it will modify our conventional practices.
Signet Solutions' signalling 'Digital Railway' courses are now available as the best available in the market. We are often imitated but never equalled!
We offer the training in ERTMS UK Application training, as well as training on the design of specific systems and equipment.
Our range of ERTMS courses have been newly written to reflect current principles, technology and workplace needs.
Our training is based on current Railway Group and Network Rail Company standards, supplemented by best practice guidance where these are unclear. However, we encourage a deep understanding of the principles and how they mitigate risks, rather than unquestioning aherence to standards or completion of boxes.
