Abstract

Radical and ongoing changes to the railway industry worldwide are leading to the non-replaced loss of important accumulated knowledge and skills amongst those retiring or made redundant from downsized or broken up rail organisations. The paper describes the development and offering of two training courses that introduce participants to the breadth of business, management and engineering activities in the industry. Improved knowledge and understanding of such workplace tasks leads to more efficient business operations.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
