The Ho Chi Minh City Urban Railway Management Board (MAUR) in collaboration with Vietnam Railway College on Saturday morning opened two training courses on the operation and management of the city’s metro line No. 1, with the participation of 28 trainees.

Of them, 19 will receive training to become dispatch technicians and nine others will be trained to manage stations of the metro line, which is expected to be put into service in early 2024.

An MAUR representative revealed that these 28 will undergo training in 12 months.

Truong Trong Vuong, vice-president of the Vietnam Railway College, which takes charge of the training courses, said dispatch technicians and other staff members play a crucial role in the operation and management of the city’s first metro line.

The courses, the first ever in the city, will pave the way for the development and training of personnel to serve the upcoming metro lines in the city and other parts of Vietnam, he added.

The city’s 19.7-kilometer-long metro line starts from the iconic Ben Thanh market in District 1 to Suoi Tien Theme Park in Thu Duc City, with three underground stations and 11 elevated ones.

Work on the route has been 94.38 percent complete.
