Webinars

RISSB is working hard behind the scenes to continue to inform, educate and inspire its members and support the broader rail community during this time of great uncertainty. We understand that many of our members have asked employees to work from home to maintain business continuity and sustain their operations as a result of the escalating COVID-19 pandemic.

Now more than ever is the time to reach out to others, share experiences, and arm yourself with knowledge to make better and informed decisions now and in the future.

With this in mind, we’re pleased to announce that RISSB has launched a series of webinars focusing on industry hot topics. Delivered by industry leaders and technical experts, the webinars will cover a broad range of subjects that are currently driving discussions in the Australian rail industry.

The webinars will be 30 – 45 minutes, depending on the topic, and will be held in real-time to give you the opportunity to participate and ask questions electronically. Keep visiting this page to view our schedule of upcoming webinars.
