MRT-3 personnel undergo railway operations training in Japan

MRT-3 personnel have learned the best practices in railway operations and maintenance from Japanese experts.

A total of nine MRT-3 engineers and technical personnel participated in the specialized training in railway operations and maintenance held from August 29 to September 3 in Japan.

It is part of the technology transfer of the MRT-3 Rehabilitation Project that will develop new skills and knowledge in railway personnel, according to the MRT-3 management.

The training included workshops on disaster management, station management control, light and heavy maintenance, and railway safety operations, it said.

The trainees were also allowed to observe some of the most innovative railway technologies in Japan, such as barrier-free accessibility transport facilities and train driving simulators, it said.

These provided them with enhanced knowledge and hands-on experience on the railway transport system in Japan, and would facilitate cross-country learning and knowledge transfer.

MRT-3 General Manager Federico Canar, Jr. said the training was in line with the MRT-3’s thrust of ensuring that its personnel are kept updated about the latest technological advances in railway operations in order to consistently provide commuters with safe and reliable transportation.

“We understand the crucial role of skills development training in our line of work. It is essential so as we can continuously upgrade our services, and better meet the needs of the riding public,” Canar said.
