ONCF and SNCF aim to bridge the skills gap



Written by Kevin Smith


AS Morocco eagerly awaits the opening of its inaugural high-speed line between Casablanca and Tangiers in the summer of 2018, the country is already reaping the benefits of a new railway training provider.


Founded as part of the inter-governmental agreement for the high-speed project signed between France and Morocco in 2007, Institut de Formation Ferroviaire (IFF) is a 50:50 joint venture between Moroccan National Railways (ONCF) and French National Railways (SNCF). Initially agreed in April 2011, and formally founded in April 2013, the company opened the doors of its Rabat headquarters, located close to Rabat-Agdal station, on March 30 2015.

ONCFIFF is responsible for equipping both ONCF and SNCF supervisors with the skills required to operate the modern railway. Instruction is delivered in 75 separate courses with subjects including passenger services, infrastructure maintenance, project management and driver training.

SNCF is also providing dedicated training to ONCF trainees who will work on the new high-speed line. This includes three to four months of initial training in France in “deep dive” sessions where they are able to learn directly from SNCF teams about the specifics of high-speed operation.

Since work began at IFF, approximately 60% of instruction has come from ONCF employees, with 25% from SNCF, and the remainder from external sources. Approximately 200 trainees from both ONCF and SNCF are now attending IFF sessions every week as activities have steadily increased: a total of 16,950 training days were offered in 2015, with approximately 11,000 for ONCF and 6000 for SNCF, rising to 20,610 in 2016 (12,000 ONCF and 8000 SNCF). The objective is to provide 30,000 training days at IFF in 2017 - 20,000 for ONCF and 10,000 for SNCF employees.

As well as high-level instruction, attendees also benefit from access to the latest training tools and technologies at the Rabat facility. Covering 3000m2, there are 18 training rooms, three of which are equipped with virtual-reality software and e-Learning modules, while five are equipped with an interactive digital whiteboard. There are a further six rooms for practical exercises as well as a driving simulator, which replicates the operation of three ONCF vehicle types: the future high-speed train, E1400 locomotive, and double-deck EMU.

Preparation work for the launch of IFF’s activities at its Rabat headquarters, including development of the curriculum, took place between 2013 and 2015. Mr Charles Cressan, IFF’s director general, says officials from both ONCF and SNCF met regularly during this period, working together to identify problems and finding solutions to specific issues.

He points out that throughout this process there was a particular focus on bridging the cultural gap between the Moroccan and French sides of the project to offer the maximum benefit to participants.

“For the SNCF trainers, we felt that it was important to understand and focus on the intercultural aspects of their delivery because there are fundamental differences between French and Moroccan culture,” Cressan says. “By understanding the importance of support of family and religion, they can understand the obstacles people face, and deliver training that is suited to their needs.”

Successful

It appears that IFF has been successful in meeting these objectives. Surveys of participants from sessions that took place in 2015 and 2016 reveal a 95% satisfaction rate. Cressan adds that these results are backed up by the observations of 20 SNCF and ONCF experts who attend sessions to monitor the quality of instruction taking place. He says these individuals also provide a direct link between the business needs of the two companies in order to identify future requirements for the content of specific courses.

In the long-term, IFF has ambitions to expand its scope to other African countries as they develop new railway infrastructure. Already 20 interns from Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, and Gabon have participated in training sessions in Rabat, and Cressan is hopeful that this element of its service will grow.

“IFF’s objective is to become a role model for railway training in Africa,” Cressan says. “We aim to offer excellent and innovative training methods while linking people with experts in the field who will bring their knowledge to the table.”

Yes for Africa.

It will be 1st railwway in Africa operated up 200km/h
(high speed and up 250km/h very high speed).

Actually fastest african train is Ansaldo Breda double decker EMU adapted to Morocco with a 180 km/h maximum speed (160km/h commercial) instead of 140 km/h in Italy :

Same cupling system than in TGV (398 seats *2)



(speedest video have been delete on Youtube)

All you can learn about Gautran or Madaraka express in Kenya is not true. There are modern train but not HST.

Official video number 6th : work base


Quote:
Ajoutée le 3 août 2017

Les bases travaux sont les centres névralgiques de tout grand chantier ferroviaire, et pour un chantier aussi titanesque que la Ligne à Grande Vitesse Tanger-Casablanca, les bases travaux ne peuvent être que gigantesques. Opérationnelles 24h/24 et 7j/7, les bases de Sidi El Yamani et de Kénitra s’étalent toutes les deux sur une superficie totale d’environ 100 hectares, accueillant ainsi une usine de fabrication de traverses produisant 1300 traverses par jour, une usine de soudage de rails produisant des longs rails soudés de 324 mètres, un chantier d’assemblage des poteaux caténaires ainsi que de vastes espaces de stockage.

Découvrez le Sixième épisode de la Websérie « LGV Tanger–Casablanca, au cœur d’un projet titanesque », épisode qui vous présente les deux grandes bases travaux de ce projet titanesque.
