Providing training courses to help develop excellence in the rail industry.

The railway relies on high-calibre, competent professionals at the top of their game. Whether you are part of day-to-day operations, strategy, management or leadership, you will need access to training courses to build, develop and refresh your teams’ capabilities.

As UK rail’s independent voice on safety and standards, we are committed to providing excellent standards of training for the industry. RSSB courses are designed in partnership with our engineers, risk modellers and human factors specialists. Our courses blend practical application with academic theory, so attendees gain knowledge and learn skills they can apply immediately to their work.

RSSB courses are delivered at our London office. However, if you prefer a course to be tailored for your organisation’s needs and delivered at your offices, contact our Training team at and we’ll be in touch to discuss how we can support you.

From time to time we would like to send you marketing about RSSB’s Training courses. If you’d like to sign up to receive our quarterly Training bulletin directly in your inbox, sign-up here.
