What learners are saying about our Introduction to Rail course:


This was a great learning experience and very easy to manage through the Railtrain interface…. I think the amount I learned in a short space of time exceeded my expectations. I also felt the value was beyond my expectations as well… Rhet was a wonderful assessor during the livestream. Juggled the needs and questions of different people while never making things feel overwhelming. 

– James L

I believe Railtrain is an excellent Registered Training Organisation and the Introduction to Rail program it conducts is both extremely informative and very interesting… It was an absolute pleasure working with Bec and Rhet. It can sometimes make you a little nervous when you are commencing something new, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt a lot from it.
