Welcome to the best kept secret in the railroad industry–The Railway Educational Bureau.

The Railway Educational Bureau (REB) has trained the railroad industry’s skilled-labor workforce for nearly a century. We’re no secret to the tens of thousands of workers who have taken our courses through the years, but if you haven’t used our services before, you may not know about everything we can do for you. We’ve worked hard to create and maintain an unparalleled reputation as the leading source for railroad workforce training.

Our methods of training delivery and our curriculum have evolved over the nearly 100 years we’ve been in business. Today, we offer a variety of training methods to suit your needs. We offer:

  • Distance Training
  • Work Site Training
  • Customized Training Solutions
  • Workshops

In addition, we offer training aids to help your organization meet its in-house goals. We can work hand in hand with training managers to help them do their jobs more efficiently. Yes, it’s no secret, the REB is a viable option to help expand your educational resources and stretch training budgets.

Our distance training courses now include a few modern touches, which makes completing course work at the REB more convenient than ever. Our students have the option to mail or email their test answers to us. More recently, we’ve begun offering a growing number of tests that may be completed online.

Our curriculum has benefited from measured growth through the years. Our training textbooks and materials have been researched and produced in conjunction with experts in the field. We strive to ensure that our information is current with Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) regulations and Association of American Railroads (AAR) rules.

When you select the REB for your training needs, you can be assured that we have earned our credentials. The REB is licensed and accredited by the State of Nebraska Department of Education under the provisions of section 85-1601 to 85-1658, Nebraska Statutes, and 92 NAC 41.

It’s no secret to the people who have used our services that the REB is a valuable solution for training. We’re here to train you and your employees to work more productively. The REB has helped railroads and the rail industry become more efficient and profitable as a result of the training we deliver.

We’ve helped both seasoned and new employees to:

  • Enhance their job skills
  • Earn promotions
  • Take on leadership roles

Our secret of success gets harder and harder to hold back every year. As the number of people we’ve trained in the rail industry expands, so too does the number of former students climbing the ladder in their respective companies. We receive many calls from former students stating that the REB helped them advance and now they need to procure training for employees under their watch. The list of supervisors, managers, and department heads who started their railroading career enrolled in our classes is impressive. Everyone seems to be finding out that the REB is the source to turn to for valuable training in the railroad industry.

More and more people are discovering that the REB is the source to turn to for your training needs. Our services are recognized and accepted by organizations throughout the rail industry. The REB is part of the Simmons-Boardman Publishing Corporation, publishers of Railway Age, Railway Track and Structures (RT&S), and International Railway Journal (IRJ). We are proud to be part of “the world’s most complete source of railway information.”
