Professional training for drivers of track maintenance devices

Professional training for drivers of track maintenance devices includes theoretical and practical training.

Theoretical training includes:

  • knowledge of provisions in the rules on signalling;
  • knowledge of provisions in the rules on transport;
  • conduct during serious accidents or incidents, and
  • detailed professional knowledge relating to braking when a motor railway vehicle is involved.
Practical training includes:
  • training on health and safety at work relating to the risk assessment;
  • training on fire safety;
  • learning about operative regulations in the safe management system;
  • working under supervision, where the candidate under the supervision of an instructor is trained to do all tasks which they will perform as a driver of track maintenance devices independently, and becomes familiar with the station and all devices and equipment installed, and
  • taking the practical examination before the commission appointed by the employer.

The entity implementing training issues a certificate of the passed examination of theoretical competence after the candidate has completed the theoretical training and verification of theoretical competence. After passing the first practical examination, the candidate receives a certificate from the employer with whom the practical part of the training took place.

To obtain the next certificate, the driver of track maintenance devices undergoes only practical training, followed by a practical examination.
