Professional training for station masters with responsibility for train movements

Candidates must have practical training before they carry out the tasks of a station master with responsibility for train movements.

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 independently as a station master with responsibility for train movements, and becomes familiar with the station and all devices and equipment installed, and
  • taking the practical examination before the commission appointed by the employer.

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, a station master with responsibility for train movements undergoes only practical training, followed by a practical examination.

Station masters with responsibility for train movements have professional competence to manage local traffic of all stations where traffic is managed remotely.
