Infrarail Receives CPD Certification for First Time

Delegates attending Infrarail 2018 will be able to claim points towards their Continuing Professional Development (CPD), it has been announced.

The CPD Certification Service has certified Infrarail’s supporting programme of events, allowing content at the exhibition to count towards individuals’ CPD records. The CPD Certification Service is the independent CPD accreditation centre working across all sectors, disciplines and further learning applications.

Infrarail 2016 – David Waboso, LondonUnderground, Keynote Speaker

Visitors who attend the exhibition’s educational programme including keynote speeches, project updates and technical seminars will be provided with the Certification of Continuing Professional Development, with the recorded number of CPD hours obtained. This can then be used by attendees and their professional bodies towards annual CPD obligations.

Infrarail – A Place to Share Knowledge and Develop Your Career

Infrarail 2018 is the 12th edition of the biennial trade exhibition and takes place at London’s ExCeL from May 1 to 3. It will showcase every aspect of railway infrastructure technology and expertise, attracting visiting managers, engineers and buyers at the highest level.

Kirsten Whitehouse, Exhibition Manager for Infrarail, said:

“It is with great excitement that I can confirm this year’s Infrarail conference programme as the first ever to be CPD-certified, meaning anyone attending any of the conference, seminar and presentation sessions can put their time spent towards their CPD record of attendance.

“This is a huge development for Infrarail and is further evidence of the educational and professional benefits of attending this year’s show. It also highlights the importance of Infrarail, not just as a networking event, but also a place where industry professionals can meet to share knowledge, experience and discussion with some of rail’s most respected figures, while using the time spent towards their career development.”

“We will be hosting a full programme of events including keynote speeches, industry briefings, technical seminars, and of course, our new Knowledge Hub with a selection of discussion forums and project updates. With all of these features now CPD-approved there is even more incentive for industry professionals to attend. Infrarail 2018 will be the definitive rail infrastructure event of the year- providing a platform for networking, deal-making, educating and inspiring those with an interest in the industry.”

Secretary of State Amongst High-Profile Keynotes

Earlier this month State Secretary of Transport, Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP was confirmed as one of six keynote speakers at this year’s event. David Waboso, Managing Director of Digital Railway at Network Rail, and Paul Griffiths, Managing Director of Phase 2 of HS2 have also just been confirmed, with three other speakers to be announced shortly.
