Professional training for rail traffic controllers
Professional training for rail traffic controllers includes theoretical and practical training.
Theoretical training includes:
- knowledge of provisions in the rules on signalling,
- knowledge of provisions in the rules on transport, and
- conduct during serious accidents or incidents.
Practical training includes:
- training on health and safety at work relating to the risk assessment;
- training on fire safety and 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 rail traffic controller independently and becomes familiar with the train announcement point 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 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 rail traffic controller undergoes only practical training, followed by a practical examination.
