'The rail industry is under going radical change,' said RITC chief executive Jackie Chappell. 'Forward thinking companies seek continuous learning. The RITC is ready to help.'

Launching the NTO, transport minister Dr John Reid said: 'Attaining competent standards is crucial. Numerous organisations carry out training to various standards. It is crucial to get the same standards.'
