In this training, the focus is on practice and thus on the application of your previously learned knowledge. With you, we want to take a closer look at and discuss the individual roles in project work. You will also learn proper source documentation, security requirements, and hazard control methodologies for a wide variety of projects. In addition, you will independently prepare a technical safety report based on a technical example.

This module concludes with the Rail Safety Engineer examination.
