Marketing Text “Interoperability” for railway transportation cannot be regarded as only a technical issue, since it is also a matter of ensuring that cross-border operations are not hampered by diverging national staff qualifications.
RAILVET aims to develop frame modular training program for the railway job family “operation” adapting it to ECVET system, up to the fourth level of EQF, taking one step further the results of the previous EU pilot project “DEPRAST” carried out between 2005 and 2007.
Complementary to the ongoing EU initiatives like “common licensing regime for train drivers”, RAILVET is expected to contribute to the interoperability of European railway area by working on harmonisation, transparency, recognition and transfer of railway staff requirements on logistics and train traffic.
Users of the project’s products are estimated to be (in addition to the decision makers) formal and non-formal railway training institutions, centres and railway companies in EU, which totally train an estimated 11,000 train drivers and around 20,000 other rail related staff a year for the sector employing roughly 900.000 people.
Description In line with EU railway transportation policies, RAILVET aims to bring together a number of affiliated institutions, organizations and companies to achieve a common approach for vocational training in “railway-operation” job family, and stimulate them for the harmonisation of the rail staff qualifications cited as inevitable for the cross border interoperability of railway transportation.
