This handbook has been written by the Chartered Institution of Railway Operators (CIRO) to be useful to all levels of railway operators who deliver safe and efficient passenger and freight rail systems across the world. From those starting out on their careers to experienced operators, railway operators need a variety of skills and a proper knowledge of their complex environment in order to deliver their best.

CIRO plays a key part in delivering the knowledge needed to support railway operators to be the best they can be, with a great learning and development offer delivered through the Professional Operators Development (POD) framework. This Operators’ Handbook uses that framework as its structure so that the learning in each chapter can be furthered through the courses run by the Institution from the Introduction to Rail to the Master’s level.

Technical knowledge is not explicitly covered by this handbook; it is assumed that users have, or are acquiring, the necessary technical skills relevant to their organisational responsibilities..
