The center will focus on sharing expertise in the rail and transport sectors alike, said RTA in an e-mailed statement.
It will run intensive training programs to qualify and improve managers and engineers in the rail and transport sectors at RTA, with special emphasis on rail technologies and systems, the statement said.
Deutsche Bahn will also help establish a full-fledged training center at RTA for it to provide job training courses since the first quarter of 2017.
“This agreement is a manifestation of the MoU signed between RTA and Deutsche Bahn last year, which provides for boosting cooperation and sharing expertise in the rail sector and transferring transport knowledge to Emirati employees at RTA,” said Mattar Al-Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA.
The government-controlled RTA operates the public transit in Dubai, while Berlin-based Deutsche Bahn has provided services to more than 130 countries worldwide and employs over 300,000 people. Enditem
