Do you work in a multidisciplinary railway team or a Railway Safety Regulator? Are you a Signalling Engineer, Engineering Technician or Technical Worker? Are you a railway professional practicing in Perway, Electrical, Telecommunications or Rolling Stock? Maybe you are a Train Operations professional? Or a railway Manager who manages a railway discipline? Or an Executive that must make pertinent decisions? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then this course is definately for you.
This course provides you with the fundamental knowledge of the railway signalling sub-systems, which will empower you to function effectively as a railway professional and decision maker – whether you practice in train operations, railway safety inspections and auditing or other railway disciplines. The course is designed with a systems thinking approach, which enables railway systems application, rather than a discipline-specific approach. It contains the basics of signalling and its founding principles that enable a functional and safe railway network.
The course has been carefully designed in accordance to SAQA standards and delivered by highly experienced facilitators, who are not only signalling professionals but also possess a holistic experience in railway systems engineering and management.
On completion of this course, you will be able to apply the knowledge of the signalling subsystems, within your immediate working environment. Understanding these signalling elements and their relationships will prepare you for a continuum of learning in the railway field. It will also empower you to make informed technical and business-related decisions, in your everyday multidisciplinary functions. This will give you a clear understanding of how a reliable railway signalling system contributes to safe and efficient train operations, which results in an efficient railway transportation system.
