Posted in Communications Training

Read the new RTAS Rules (V2.0) and join the ‘what’s changed’ webinar

A new version of the Rail Training Assurance Scheme Rules (RTAS) 2.0 (V2.0) has been published in collaboration with Network Rail’s appointed Assurance Organisation NSAR.

Collectively we have addressed the safety concerns raised by our cohort of industry stakeholders’ in the existing version of the rules. By making some fundamental changes, most notably V2.0 has had a ‘plain English’ review’, V2.0 should be easier to understand, implement and continues to promote a consistent high standard of training and assessment. RTAS Rules V2.0 has been written by the industry for the industry!
