I really enjoyed the study programme and it has taught me everything I need to know. The course was fun and interesting. I feel I know a lot about the rail industry and I am now confident in my work.
Whether you’ve been thinking about it for quite some time, or it’s a relatively new concept, working on the railway is an especially rewarding career to have and – here at Real Skills Training – we can help you to pursue the job of your dreams!
Before you can start work on the railway, you need to undergo Personal Track Safety training (PTS training). We provide PTS training to suit the requirements of employers who are looking to educate their employees about the importance of track safety.
If you’re looking for railway training in London, we can provide this on-site – bringing our services and training material to your premises. As well as on-site training, we regularly run courses at our training academies in Leeds and Liverpool.
PTS training London – what’s included?
With PTS training in London, we aim to provide candidates with an abundance of knowledge that is useful for when they start working on the railway lines. Our qualified trainers educate them on track safety, ensuring that they gain a clear insight into what to expect from working in one of the most dangerous environments, and how to react should a hazard occur.
As well as this, PTS training in London will allow individuals to demonstrate their understanding of the safe system of work, allowing them to put into practice what they have learnt. At Real Skills, we offer the PTS training course to ensure that employees work safely and will also assess their ability to interpret the Personal Track Safety handbook.
What does the PTS course in London cover?
PTS doesn’t just include classroom-learning. Candidates have the opportunity to gain experience hands-on, utilising what they already know, what they have understood from the training in the classroom and the PTS handbook.
The PTS course in London covers many of the potential hazards that can arise in the railway industry, including:
- worker and vehicle collisions
- trips and falls
- power faults
In addressing such dangers, the PTS course ensures that employees know what is required of them to remain safe at all times and allows them to respond in the safest, most appropriate way.
Applying for the PTS course
Applying for railway training in London is easy. However, you must pass a medical, drugs and alcohol test to make sure that you are fit to work first. Anyone who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol cannot apply for the PTS course as their ability to react is affected.
The e-learning is yet another pre-requisite of our PTS training courses. The online program provides candidates with the opportunity to put their knowledge to the test and must be completed before we can offer a place on our PTS course in London. Sponsorship is also required – either from a railway company or current or future employer. Without it, individuals won’t be able to participate in our training.
To guarantee safe working practice, we offer PTS training to provide your employees with a wider skillset, making sure that they are aware of what’s going on in the surrounding environment.
