Due to the continuing uncertainty relating to the evolving COVID-19 situation, and the travel and event attendance restrictions being introduced by some members, the ARA Board has has decided that all ARA events until the end of June will not be going ahead. We are planning for these events to be rescheduled later this year, new dates will be promoted in the ARA Weekly Update and Event Alert emails when confirmed.

If you have booked places for an event, we will be in contact with you in the next two weeks or organise refunds.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, however the health and wellbeing of attendees is of the utmost importance to the ARA and we appreciate your understanding and thank you for your continued support.


The ARA runs a variety of one and two-day courses throughout the year to provide industry employees with a better understanding of the rail industry overall, as well as specific technical areas such as rail signalling, rollingstock engineering and track engineering.
