Next Investigate Rail Safety Incidents Course

This course builds on industry best practice and promotes a just culture approach for investigations.
Launched in December 2022, the National Rail Skills Hub coordinates industry and government training initiatives and activities and was set up to address national rail skills and labour shortages. RISSB is working with the National Rail Skills Hub, the ARA and a Stakeholder Reference Group to unlock opportunities to upskill, retain and clear pathways to working in rail.
The National Rail Skills Hub has a host of valuable resources including a rail remuneration insights report, a skills priority list and a supply chain industry outlook.
