Successfully electrify our railways

The IET’s Railway Electrification Infrastructure and Systems (REIS) course is a flexible 5-day technical training programme spread over two weeks, covering the technical knowledge and practical skills needed to improve the performance of your electrification projects.

The programme is designed for engineers in the early stages of their railway electrification career, as well as multi-disciplinary rail engineers looking to expand their knowledge base.

Delivered by industry experts, it starts with two days of live virtual interactive sessions, followed by three in-person days at IET Stevenage: Futures Place, UK. The course concludes with a technical visit to London.

This new format for 2024 offers greater flexibility and you’ll benefit from time to absorb the learnings in between sessions. You’ll also enjoy in person networking and collaboration with both the trainers and your fellow course participants.
