Summary

We have developed this workshop to equip you with a basic understanding of vehicle acceptance procedures in modern railway fleet.

We introduce you to the relevant safety management systems and authorisation procedures as well as the latest European Union directives.

The course includes an overview of authorisation processes and vehicle acceptance bodies.

This course is suitable for recent graduates moving into traction and rolling stock; non-traction and rolling stock engineers moving into new roles within traction and rolling stock; production and engineering managers new to the industry; infrastructure and asset managers; accident investigators; and design and maintenance traction and rolling stock engineers wanting to learn or refresh in specific traction and rolling stock discipline.

    After attending this course you will be able to:

  • Explain the current rolling stock acceptance processes for each type of railway system in the above scope
  • Explain the roles and responsibilities of the organisations involved
  • Explain the techniques and methodologies used to analyse vehicle system safety by the VAB/NOBO/ISA/NRAP and their counterparts in other railway systems
