In December 2021, the course “Train Control Systems in Local Traffic (CBTC)” was successfully implemented first time as a continuing education course under the auspices of Dresden International University (DIU) – as an online course due to the pandemic. CERSS supported the client in the development and implementation of the course and contributed a lecture on the topic of “Safety functions and degrees of automation”. In cooperation with numerous other companies in the industry, a new format was created that met with great interest in practice and will probably be offered again in 2022.
