Since 2018, in order to connect with the industry, serve the society and the “Belt and Road” Initiative, build a high-quality rail transit major group – one of the four major groups of the College and improve the professional international communication service ability, the Rail Transit Department took the lead to cooperate with the International Training Center of China Railway Eryuan Engineering Group Co., Ltd. to jointly develop international training courses and cultivate bilingual trainers. So far, it has trained nearly 100 rail transit officials from three continents.
This year, as the rail transit comprehensive training center is completed and put into use, based on last year’s cooperation, the Rail Transit Department further developed and adjusted the international training courses, forming three categories of international training courses with the characteristics of Chengdu Industry and Trade College, including courses of training mode of rail transit talents, immersive experience driving simulation, AFC (automatic far collection) system maintenance courses and Chinese craftsmanship spirit and traditional culture courses, which introduces the “Chengdu Practice” of training talents of urban rail transit major group to the world.
