Our Free Learning Nuggets
A nugget is a small lump of gold or other precious metal found ready-formed in the earth.
Our free Learning Nuggets are short training units that condense the transport knowledge and experience acquired by Deutsche Bahn throughout its 180-year history into bitesize chunks. We want to inspire you by sharing our know-how and creating new experiences in a great online learning setting.
DB Rail Academy’s nuggets provide insights into various rail and transportation sector topics, with each session guided by one or more Deutsche Bahn experts. During our live online trainings, you will gain an understanding about various technical fields within a mixed traffic transportation system as well being given the opportunity to ask questions of Deutsche Bahn’s industry leading experts. Among other things, our keynote speakers will report on developments within the sector and give tips on how to challenge those.
Concept of our nuggets
Participation in these online training is free of charge. You simply need to register for your favorite Learning Nugget. If you have registered for a free online session but are unable to attend, you will still receive the presentations after the event.
Following completion of the online training, you will be asked to participate in a short survey. Participation in this survey is voluntary.
