The complex interactions between critical systems and devices in the rail sector, such as signalling and telecommunications systems, represent a significant challenge for operators and manufacturers. These players are constrained to fulfil safety, performance, quality and interoperability targets as cost-effectively as possible.
TÜV SÜD and its subsidiaries have the necessary expertise and knowledge to support manufacturers, operators and official bodies in all equipment- and technology-related aspects. We can offer rapid and efficient EC verification and conformity assessment as Notified Body and major expertise in signalling technology projects globally.
The training targets first-time and regular users of the body of standards, focusing on use in development, verification, validation, assessment and placing into service.
Our training course modules in “Rail Transport – Signalling Technology” introduce the processes that are essential to your role in the safety life cycle. You are familiarised with the individual topics with the help of practical examples. All training course modules adopt a situation-based approach to the role of supporting processes and the resulting deliverables.
Our Rail Transport – Signalling trainings give insights into the following topics:
We offer two different modules for the rail signalling training.
Electronic systems are increasingly used as part of safety-relevant rail applications. These systems play a key role in signalling technology. From specifications and proof of reliability, availability, maintainability and safety (RAMS) to development of software for rail control and surveillance systems, these areas are governed by the CENELEC standards (DIN) EN 50126 to (DIN) EN 50129. This seminar prepares you for working with these standards and provides an overview of the various requirements for the selected safety integrity level, using case studies and practical examples.
The range of applications for electronic systems in control and safety technology is expanding rapidly, but is accompanied by a host of different requirements concerning planning, construction, testing and inspection, and acceptance. At this workshop, the signalling technology experts at TÜV SÜD address current topics and explain the technology used in each case. Relevant basic principles of safety technology are refreshed in line with the specific needs of the target group, and changes and amendments to regulations are analysed.
All training courses in signalling can be ordered as individual modules or in combination to offer customised in-house training courses in your company.
