Continuing Education

The focus of our continuing education offers lies in the fundamentals of railway technology and the interaction between the various disciplines.

Another focus are the RAMS / LCC courses in railway projects, which we offer and carry out together with the Institute for Transport Planning and Systems (IVT) of ETH Zurich and the Institute of Data Analysis and Process Design (IDP) of Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW).

Since the founding of the company about 25 courses have been held with about 500 participants.

(Even before the founding of eduRail courses were offered, originally by the former University of Applied Sciences of both Basel – FHBB, then by the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland – FHNW. Total we welcomed around 1’000 participants.)
