Railway Electrification Infrastructure and Systems
Location and date
14 - 15 May 2024, Live virtual
21 – 22 May 2024, Stevenage
Expand your technical expertise on railway electrification infrastructure and design with our comprehensive training program. Led by industry experts, you’ll gain first-hand knowledge and experience that goes beyond standard guidance.
Equip yourself with practical skills that you can confidently apply to real-world situations and make valuable contributions to the railway electrification industry.
- Experience unparalleled training in railway electrification from a diverse group of industry experts
- Benefit from lessons learned from major electrification projects, such as the commissioning of Crossrail/Elizabeth line
- Network with lead engineers and representatives from infrastructure owners, legislation bodies, academia, and design houses
- Discover the latest technologies and proposals for improving electrification efficiency and affordability
- Engage in discussions about specific electrification challenges and help shape the future of industry standards
The four day programme takes place across two weeks, there will also be a technical visit with limited spaces available, dates and location to be confirmed.
Our live virtual courses are interactive online training events where a live trainer engages with a small class using MS Teams. Learners have the opportunity to be active participants in the session and take part in real-time discussions and breakout exercises.

Duration: four days
CPD hours: 30
Four days of intense learning
Over four intensive days, you’ll learn:
- Fundamental principles of electrifying a railway network
- Key requirements for infrastructure design, power supply systems and overhead equipment
- How to apply electrification principles to a real-world railway system
- Insights into energy efficiency, emerging technologies, and innovation
- Industry-focussed project exercise
- Both trainer’s presentation slides and supplement technical papers.
Mastering these electrification fundamentals is essential for railway engineers as we transition to a zero-emission transport network.
