As an accredited City & Guilds training facility, a preferred training provider for the National Skills Academy for Rail (NSAR) and an Excellence in Achievement & Learning (EAL) approved assessment center, we offer a wide range of entry level through to complex ‘off the shelf’ and bespoke courses aimed at both businesses intending to upskill their workforce and individuals looking to further their careers.
Our aim is to recognise the diverse training needs and potential within each and every candidate while taking into account the industry and operational requirements.
We also deliver resettlement training for forces leavers as well as collaborating with colleges and the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) to both train and upskill their candidates.
Our facility includes an authentic track layout with a simulated rail platform and a live fibre network of circa 240 km which incorporates both legacy and 21st century equipment. Our technical academy stands to deliver world class training and accreditation across multiple disciplines and industry sectors.
Telecommunications: We deliver operational communication systems training – including Station Information and Surveillance Systems (SISS), Driver Only Operations (DOO) Systems, concentrators, transmissions and lineside equipment. Our training includes the installation, testing and commissioning of both copper and high speed Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) fibre optics networks.
Signalling: We deliver comprehensive training and basic appreciation in signalling theory. Our signalling training facility was constructed to provide candidates with real hands-on experience. Our authentic platform and tracks incorporates various styles of signals and operating equipment which provides a realistic and accessible set-up for safe and practical training. In order to enhance the learning experience, the signalling facility also incorporates associated power and communications equipment.
Power: We are already expanding our electrical and power training capability for both rail and DNO networks. Our aim is to deliver LV/HV for installation and commissioning.
