Safety Training for Railway
CRITICAL Software uses senior practising avionics engineers and DERs to provide training in the CENELEC standards EN 50126, EN 50128 and EN 50129 and ERTMS/ECTS for trackside and onboard systems, as well as courses covering the principles of systems engineering and risk assessment in the rail sector.
Railway CENELEC Standards: EN 50126/8/9
CRITICAL Software’s two-day workshop empowers attendees to make better informed decisions about issues relating to the CENELEC standards and their application in the rail industry. The CENELEC standards cover the specification and demonstrability of system Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) (EN 50126 / IEC 62278), communications, signaling and processing systems in rail control and protection systems (EN 50128 / IEC 62279), and communications, signaling and processing systems in safety-related electronic systems for signaling (EN 50129).

An Overview of ERTMS
CRITICAL Software’s one-day training course provides attendees with a general understanding of trackside and onboard systems in the context of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) and the European Train Control System (ETCS).
An understanding of the basis of ERTMS and ETCS is developed, exploring why the systems were developed and what purpose they serve. Following this, a more detailed understanding of trackside architecture, ETCS language and train modes, and driver-machine interfaces is developed. Find out more and register for the course.
Systems Engineering in the Rail Industry
This two-day training course introduces the discipline of systems engineering, and how its application contributes to safety management in the rail sector. One of the greatest challenges that engineers in the rail sector face is how to deal with the complexity of railway projects, even when projects seem superficially manageable at first glance. This training course will review and discuss the common problems faced by engineers and the tools they can use to effectively deal with these challenges. Find out more and register for the course.
Developing Risk Assessment Skills for the Rail Sector
This three-day course provides a detailed understanding of the risk assessment tools and fundamental techniques used in the rail sector. The course provides clarity and addresses the challenges associated with a confusingly broad range of risk assessment tools and techniques, helping attendees to avoid the common selection mistakes that can waste time and money, and cause problems further down the line.
