Pre-requisites: Before we can offer anyone a place on the DCCR course, candidates must already hold a PTS (Personal Track Safety) card and a DCCR key point booklet. Other formalities include:
- a medical, drugs and alcohol test
- booking form
We ask all sponsors to ensure candidates booked onto the course are eligible for training – on the basis that they meet the medical requirements of Network Rail. On the day, they will need to bring their Sentinel card with the PTS qualification added (unless they have only just completed their PTS training).
Course Objectives: The core objective for DCCR is to provide individuals with the knowledge required to carry out their duties in DC electrified areas, whilst adhering with current industry standards.
We use only the best training materials for DCCR to enhance the learning experience. And, although the majority of the session will be classroom-based, we also provide demonstrations and practical exercises – allowing delegates to put into practice what they have learnt.
By the end of the DCCR course, we expect candidates to:
- understand the DC electrified system and be able to identify the main components of the DC rail system
- identify hazards and risks associated with the DC conductor rail and DC isolations, along with full safety knowledge
- understand the work safe and emergency response procedures
- demonstrate the correct application and removal of conductor rail shields
Duration: 1 Day
Despite being short, the DCCR course provides those who have already completed their PTS training – and keen to get started working near or adjacent to DC conductor rails – with an abundance of information.
Maximum Attendees: 12
We provide DCCR sessions for a maximum of 12 students at once. We understand that this course is extremely popular but, striving to provide the most efficient training, we find that smaller groups work best. Rather than cramming everyone in and rushing through the program, limiting the class size to 12 allows our trainers to provide better quality training.
Certification: All course results will be submitted to the Rail Sentinel database. The Sentinel smart card of the individual will be updated within 48-hours of completion of the DCCR course.
