UDK: 378.018.43:656


Sergey L. Lobachev - Doctor of Technical Sciences, professor, Russian University of Transport


Abstract. The current paper has discussed the main tendencies in transport education in Russia, underlined its most significant distinctive features and their reflection in the directions of the Russian transport system development, set out in the Transport Strategy of the Russian Federation. There has been noted that since the beginning of the XXI century the main tendency in the education of Russia has been centralization, which is implemented in the form of establishing federal, flagship and network universities. Based on the previous analysis of software platforms of transport universities, there was drawn a conclusion that universities of this profile have modern distance learning systems, which are based on the Moodle platform common to most universities. The experience accumulated in transport universities during the educational process using distance learning technologies allows speaking about the reality of the project of a network transport university in Russia. The organizational and legal form of such a university should be a consortium of transport universities, which implies an equal partnership of all participating universities. This project is aimed at integrating the scientific potential of transport universities and improving the quality of training the transport specialists by strengthening cooperation, interuniversity connection, and cooperation with transport industry enterprises in the Russian Federation. There has been drawn a conclusion that in the context of digitalization of the transport industry and the economy, these are network universities that have the highest potential, since they combine the potential advantages of various universities on a voluntary basis, providing conditions for mutual enrichment both in methodological and technological facets.

Evgeny A. Nesterov. Legal regulation of drivers’ training schools in Russia

UDK: 351.811.122:629


Evgeny A. Nesterov - Candidate of Law, head of the Law Institute, Russian University of Transport


Abstract. Currently, 70% of drivers’ training organizations are commercial, striving, first of all, for obtaining profit, i.e. to train a student and send him to the state exam in the traffic police as soon as possible. In such a situation, it is no use to talk about the quality and attentive attitude to the problems of drivers’ training. The 2013 driver training reforms not only failed to fully clarify and fill the gaps in the current legislation, but gave rise to new questions that have not yet been answered. According to the Order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia issued on February 20, 2021 No. 80, there were approved the Administrative Regulations of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation on the provision of public services for conducting exams for driving licenses. The new rules are a compilation of the best foreign experience that could be applied in Russian conditions. What changes have been made to the rules for passing the exam on a driving license? There is a hope that the toughening of the rules will have a positive impact on the quality of students’ knowledge. In this case, drivers’ training schools will not only have to train for the correct answers, but also ensure a thorough study of the curriculum for future drivers, and its implementation will be checked at an internal exam.

Nataliya V. Kuzina. Improving the regulatory framework for VR simulators’ use, regulating the transport safety management system, as a factor in the formation of anti-corruption competencies

UDK: 347.463:621.56.8


Nataliya V. Kuzina - leading researcher of the FSBES the Security Problems Studies Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, nvkuzina@mail.ru


Abstract. Despite the fact that it was in the field of transport almost a century ago that the method of training vehicle workers on simulators first appeared, in the context of the spread of methods of virtual reality and digitalization, there is still no clear legislative regulation, primarily in terms of the need to use the method of collective crew trainings using virtual and augmented reality technologies. The current paper has analyzed the causes of plane crashes (according to the Interstate Aviation Committee) arising as a result of inadequate interaction of aircraft crew members with automation and ground services, which often appear when the conditioned reflexes collide during an extreme situation. This also occurs as a result of retraining of specialists for the operation of other aircraft models, the lack of joint crew trainings on simulators. Indicative is the fact that in the documents of the Interstate Aviation Committee, as a rule, there is also data on the successful previous certification of the flight and ground personnel, whose actions caused the accident. In the context of a shortage of personnel in private and regional airlines, unfortunately, it is necessary to state the fact that obtaining documents confirming the competence of pilots is usually a result of the corruption schemes. It is necessary to legislatively consolidate for transport workers’ training the necessity of team training methods using virtual reality (VR), which will bring the work of the team as close as possible to various extreme situations, allow them to ‘feather in’, and also prevent corruption in assessing competencies and obtaining admission to transport activities (in particular, permission to fly).

UDK: 378.046.4:656.62.08


Gennady Yu. Leshchov - Candidate of Economic Sciences, deputy director on innovations of the Law Institute of the Russian University of Transport


Abstract. The current paper has presented the analysis of the modern training system of specialists in the field of rail and road transport safety. The author has identified the main factors that negatively affect the implementation of educational programs for training specialists in the area under consideration. The paper has considered the necessity to develop standard basic vocational training programs in order to establish a single basic level of competence for railway workers directly related to train driving and maneuvers. There has been expressed a negative attitude towards the subject composition of economic entities that are training drivers of vehicles (driving schools), the content of programs for vocational training of drivers of vehicles of the corresponding categories and subcategories, etc. Also, there has been suggested to create a self-regulatory organization in order to ensure the efficiency and quality of training for persons who drive vehicles, uniting organizations that carry out relevant educational activities, etc.

Anatoliy M. Skrynnik. The system of training, retraining and advanced training of senior management staff in the field of state management of marine economic activities: a brief historical and legal aspect

UDK: 378:339.5(075.8)


Anatoliy M. Skrynnik - Candidate of Economic Sciences, docent, associate professor of the department of procedural law of the law faculty of the South Russian Institute of Management — branch of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA), member of the Association of International Maritime Law


Abstract. The current paper has provided a brief excursion into the historical domain of the system of training and retraining of highly qualified staff in the field of state management of maritime economic activities in the USSR and the Russian Federation. There has been shown the role of the Academy of Water Transport, which trained personnel for the sea and river transport of the USSR in 1935―1941, and the Academy of the Navy, which trained senior staff for the sea transport of the USSR in 1946―1956. There has been considered the main activity of the faculties (later renamed to institutes) of advanced training of executives and specialists of the Ministry of the Navy at the Leningrad Higher Marine Engineering School named after S.O. Makarov and the Odessa Institute of Navy Engineers. There has been noted that since 1978, senior management staff for sea transport has been trained at the Academy of National Economy under the Council of Ministers of the USSR (currently Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA)). There has been suggested a scientifically grounded proposal that at present, senior management personnel for sea transport and maritime economic activities in general should be trained at the Russian University of Transport and State Maritime Universities.
