Valencia, 31 March 2023. – The new Fundación Valenciaport’s new programme to jointly obtain the Train Driver’s Licence and Driving Diploma will finally start next April 20th, so the registration period has been extended until April 17th.
Fundación Valenciaport, which last February got the homologation as a training centre for railway staff, launched this programme a couple of weeks ago, becoming the first railway school linked to a port.
The aim of this course is to jointly obtain the train driver’s licence and the diploma accrediting the minimum general knowledge required for category B certificates. Obtaining the Driving Licence and Diploma together with the corresponding Certificate entitles the holder to drive trains on the RFIG (General Interest Railway Network).
Fundación Valenciaport has announced a maximum of 20 places for this course, which includes a total of 1,150 teaching hours, with 650 hours of theory and 500 hours of practice. The theoretical part of the course will be given at the Fundación Valenciaport facilities, which will give way to 500 hours of practical work, some of which will be carried out on board Logitren trains, a railway company located in the Port of Valencia with whom the Fundación Valenciaport has signed a collaboration agreement for practical work. The rest will be completed with visits, workshops and practical activities in terminals with railway connection, all of this in order to contribute to a better and more specialised training of the students.
All the information about the course, as well as the registration form are available on the Fundación Valenciaport’s website: CURSO DE LICENCIA Y DIPLOMA DE MAQUINISTA FERROVIARIO – Fundación Valenciaport
