Training courses despite Corona - online courses make it possible

PMC Rail International Academy has made good use of the time that has passed and has continued to provide training. Since classroom training is currently not permitted and the risk of infection for employees and seminar participants is high, it is important to be creative in an entrepreneurial way. PMC Rail has successfully developed online course concepts and has already conducted some - with positive feedback from participants and instructors.  

Online courses - Not a temporary phenomenon

Online courses are to be included as an integral part of the training programme with immediate effect. "We at PMC Rail have been working on the idea for some time now – and have been working on it very hard – of digitalising our training concepts. Therefore, the current situation and contact restrictions have only slightly accelerated the launch of our plans, which is very much to our pleasing," says PMC Rail Managing Director Antonio Intini.

In addition to the extensive e-learning offer, which will be published shortly, live online courses will now also be conducted in all areas that do not require a certifying exam.

Accelerated digitisation - no surprise for PMC Rail

Generally, the concept of PMC Rail is based on the use of modern and innovative methods to convey knowledge. In such exceptional situations, it is therefore easy for the experienced training academy to use digital media such as its own e-learning or online course systems to do just that. The wide range of training courses on offer is therefore ideally suited to be adapted to different methods of knowledge transfer.

In the future, more and more basic training courses will be taught in a way that is location independent and, in the case of e-learning, also independent of time. This saves time, travel expenses as well as financial resources for the seminar participants and their employers. In-depth and practical training courses will continue to be held in classroom training sessions as well as on the tracks and the training equipment. "A combination of digital and face-to-face training courses is the right way into the future of adult education, especially in such a challenging time. PMC Rail will play a decisive role in the railway infrastructure industry," says Intini.
