SWISS Federal Railways is to transfer its driver training activities to the specialist company Login which already trains other staff involved in public transport.

From January 2006 Login will take over training of all SBB drivers. While SBB will continue to recruit and employ drivers, Login’s driver training school will be open for use by other operators. There will also be an option for students completing the course and passing the relevant exams to become ’freelance’ drivers on the same model as some airline pilots.
