5 steps to becoming a Rail Safety Engineer

In collaboration with INTERENGINEER, TÜV NORD has developed a 5-phase model which will train you, step-by-step, to be an expert in the reliability and safety of rail technology systems. The focus here is on teaching the necessary specialist knowledge of the railway standards for functional safety. If you successfully pass all 5 modules, we will issue you with a certificate entitled "Rail Safety Engineer", in accordance with EN 50126, EN 50129 and EN 50128. The training enables every participant to plan and guide development projects taking the standard and other regulations into account.

Individual training modules can also be arranged upon request. However, the Rail Safety Engineer certificate can only be awarded to those who successfully sit all the modules.
