UITP has been organising training programmes worldwide on various public transport topics since years now. Our flagship product remains the training programme for public transport managers organised every year in three different cities and targeting high potentials in the sector.

Besides this very comprehensive course, other programmes have been added to our portfolio: the training programme on public transport fundamentals for newcomers in the business; the Security Risk Assessment course; Contracting for better public transport and others, also at regional level.

UITP’s training programmes are given by expert managers and leading industry figures to ensure the highest possible quality of teaching. The programmes are an excellent opportunity to discover the latest innovations shaping the industry, broaden your knowledge of a specific topic or even the opportunity to learn from best practices via technical visits. UITP training programmes are also the ideal chance to meet and exchange ideas with other like-minded professionals from all over the world.

UITP has developed a host of training and professional development programmes that reflect the changing demands of the public transport sector as well as specific regional demands. The training programmes cover all areas of the public transport industry, from regulation and operation to IT management and maintenance, covering both broad mobility issues and technical and operational topics. UITP’s trainers are expert managers and leading industry figures. The training portfolio has recently expanded to include more topics, more regions and more languages.
