UIC Rail Academy

UIC Rail Academy is launching its first Live Classroom training courses on FRMCS Engineering at UIC Headquarters in Paris on 4 – 5 October


GSM-R end of life is anticipated to be around 2030 which only leaves a few years to find a replacement system. One of the key elements of success is developing the necessary skills of engineers well in advance of the start of FRMCS deployment. This approach has triggered the creation of the UIC Rail Academy, whose first Live Classroom training courses will be held at UIC Headquarters in October.

This two-day FRMCS Engineering course is open to anyone that would like to gain an insight into how mobile telecommunications for railways may migrate from GSM-R to the system known as FRMCS.
