About the course

This course addresses both signalling and signalling control systems as well as their associated sub-systems, together with the major system and sub-system interfaces.

Covering the principal aspects in depth, the course makes an ideal start for anyone moving into train control engineering, both for graduate engineers and more experienced engineers looking to add to their knowledge base.

Chaired by George Clarke who is a Technical Director at Transport for London. 

Additionally, the course’s Keynote speaker is Andy Knight, President of The Institution of Railway Signal Engineers. 

Attendees will

  • Understand the fundamental design and assurance requirements of modern safety signalling and control systems
  • Gain an in-depth knowledge of the acceptance and regulatory regimes in place
  • Analyse the role of the human in the context of the railway service to be operated and the appropriate levels of system integration required
  • Cover both the signalling and signalling control systems as well as their associated sub systems together with the major system and sub-system interfaces.

What are the opinions of previous attendees of RSCS™?

"I took a great deal of information from the content presented and also made valuable industry contacts."

"Coming from the E&P team at Network Rail, I had limited knowledge of signalling before the course. The course description stated it was tailored to those who are new to railway engineering, and although it was an intense four days, the basics were covered at the beginning of the week, allowing me to understand the more technical presentations that were covered later on."

"The course met all my objectives and gave me the knowledge of railway signalling systems that I required."
