Expertise Development Platform 2016 20-21 October 2016, Rabat, Morocco

The Expertise Development Platform is drawn from training organizations and companies, and also from Training professionals and experts. This ensures that the workplan is appropriate to enable effective decision making regarding the development of common activities. This promotes dialogue and exchange for the mutual benefit of the rail training sector . The platform’s active professional dialogue will guarantee competitiveness within the rail training sector. Like all other activities, training is becoming a business activity. The future for our training centers is to relate to the market by not being nationally focused and delivering in a monopolistic way. All training centres are invited to attend.
