Founded in 1999, the Chartered Institution of Railway Operators (CIRO) works at the heart of the rail operations community. Offering a combination of learning, events, CPD courses, networking, and our unique Mentoring Scheme, we bring together industry-leading knowledge and railway operations expertise to support our members and deliver the very best developmental opportunities and industry recognised qualifications.
Working alongside members and the broader rail operations sector we are proud to contribute to improving best practice and supporting the success of rail operations businesses.
10,000+ CIRO members part of our professional organisation, offering career development opportunities for all involved in railway operations.
21 years’ experience in providing professional recognition, training, and development opportunities.
119 apprentices trained, qualified, and placed into industry during 2019-2020.
The courses with the CIRO are great because you don’t get all of this knowledge in one place anywhere else. It plugs the gaps in your knowledge base, plus there’s the non-academic side which is also great like the events, speakers, webinars and more, they’re very valuable. It gives students a route to an academic qualification that they might not otherwise have.
