The IRO provides bespoke training packages both at a tailor-made company level and as open access courses. This course is designed for those who are new to the subject as well as those who wish to further their career development and expertise in this field by setting their knowledge in a wider context. The flexibility offered by IRO Learn means that Ops180 courses can be tailored to meet the exact requirements of an organisation. As well as the taught courses above, IRO Learn offers a variety of online courses that can be studied anytime, anywhere.
This interactive course is divided into nine manageable sections and provides people who are new to rail with a basic overview of each aspect of the industry.
Further to the introductory course, the Ops90 course modules are designed to mirror the basis of all of the Institution’s learning framework (Professional Operators Development – POD).
The Certificate of Coaching and Mentoring is an online professional development course that will help participants to develop the skills to support and sustain improved performance by others.
I have learned a great deal of powerful personal development techniques, which have helped me to overcome adversity in my personal life and, in turn, I have been able to help others, who needed my help to improve their quality of life; a veritable virtuous circle.
I recently attended an NLP practitioner course which Jimmy and one his colleagues delivered.

Jimmy was pivotal part of all the football programmes broadcast on Sky Sports Radio between 2006-2011. As well as this, IRO Learn (the Institution’s learning website) offers a variety of online and taught courses that provide an alternative to our academic distance learning courses in Railway Operations Management. Topics covered in this course include: The Market for Rail Transport, Track and Train – the Basics, Signalling, Operational Standards and Interfaces and Organising the Railway. We will introduce the specific tasks of operational planning, and set out to show how the timetable is fundamental to a railway business, generating revenue and influencing costs. Each course aims to help broaden your outlook, fill gaps in knowledge and provide tangible means of advancement though recorded continuous professional development and self-learning. There are simple to follow explanations, videos and diagrams along with supporting text in each section, finalised by a simple short quiz at the end of each section to qualify understanding.
Each taking around 90 minutes to complete (hence the name!), they provide valuable railway operations understanding, in most cases extending beyond the boundaries of your specific job role. You will learn to develop a professional mentoring relationship with a learner, in particular an apprentice or trainee employed by, or undertaking work placement in, a workplace.  Designed to help you develop your mentoring and coaching skills, the Certificate of Coaching and Mentoring will teach you how to design and implement a coaching and mentoring program using adult learning principles and current coaching and mentoring methodologies.
Jimmy's knowledge on the subject is extensive however he can easily translate this into every day experiences making him an excellent teacher.

Each link below will take you to the IRO Learn website where you can find more about course content and difficulty. Without exaggeration the NLP course that Jimmy Petruzzi taught and his methods have changed all aspects of my life for the better. The course was well-structured, professionally run and content rich but the crowning glory of it all was the interpersonal skills and the knowledge that Jimmy has. I have already used a number of the strategies taught by Jimmy in my work place and seen great results. He is gracious, determined, unjudgemental and extremely generous in sharing his experiences with the people he works with.
