Starting your career

The education of trainees is of great importance to the Rhaetian Railway. That is why it works with login, the transport sector’s professional partner for vocational education and training.

Although the trainees serve their apprenticeship with the Rhaetian Railway, they are actually employed by login. As a result, they benefit from a carefully structured education whilst also gaining access to professional expertise.

The Rhaetian Railway, in partnership with login, is the biggest vocational trainer in the canton of Graubünden. We are currently training over 100 young people in the canton in eleven different careers.

The Rhaetian Railway's eleven apprenticeship careers:

Answers to frequently asked questions

Can I apply for an apprenticeship with the Rhaetian Railway directly?

The RhB does not employ trainees directly. The application process is handled by the login training association. The RhB, like many other companies in the public transport sector, is a login partner company. All of Rhaetian Railway's apprenticeship places are advertised on the login web site. The easiest way to find them is to click on the canton of Graubünden in the map.

Trainee centre exchange for KVöV and Logistics:
As a KVöV or Logistics trainee, you have the opportunity to serve your apprenticeship with a variety of different public transport companies. Each semester, you move to a different work placement, which may be internal (staying at the RhB) or external (moving to another company).

Do I have to complete a trial-apprenticeship programme first?

To do this, you should apply for an advertised apprenticeship place on the login website in the normal way. You can apply either by post or online. You can submit your application as soon as you have received your school report for the first semester of Year 8. The trial-apprenticeship course lasts between one and five days, depending on your chosen apprenticeship, and is held at the appropriate RhB placement location.

What are the requirements for admission to the trial-apprenticeship programme?

Before you can take part in an RhB trial-apprenticeship programme, you must complete a 90-minute assessment test in Landquart. The test covers verbal and mathematical skills, and spatial awareness. Its purpose is to ensure that you meet the entry requirements for the apprenticeship you wish to undertake.
The assessment test and trial-apprenticeship programme are organised by login Berufsbildung. Find out more at or contact login directly on: 0848 822 422.
