Our next information and guidance session will be held virtually 16th September 10AM
Every day over four million journeys are made across the 20,000 miles of track in England, Scotland and Wales. Britain has Europe’s fastest-growing railway and needs trained, hard-working individuals who are prepared to work round-the-clock to keep the system moving safely, reliably and efficiently. Are you ready to become a part of this vital network of engineers?
You will gain knowledge of rail engineering technologies and track maintenance processes through online classroom sessions. Once government guidelines permit, practical work experience on real track lines will take place. Some of the key topics covered are Railway infrastructure, Track Engineering, Signalling Systems and Overhead Line Equipment. After you have finished this 21-week course, you will then complete a two-week Personal Track Safety (PTS) course which is funded by the College. This qualification is essential for everyone who wishes to work on or near any line on Network Rail’s infrastructure.
