You can't work on a railway without CSCS card training!

What Qualifications Are Needed to Work on the Railway?

Are you unemployed or looking for a change of career? Then work on Britain’s railways sounds like it could be the job for you. As well as being an incredibly rewarding vocation, recent government initiatives to extend Britain’s railway networks have considerably increased the demand for railway training. So what qualifications do you need exactly? We at Renown Training are pleased to offer a vast range of first class training courses that have earned us the reputation of one of the industry’s leading providers of railway training. By choosing Renown, you will earn all important qualifications in CSCS Card Training, Personal Track Safety (PTS) training, Lookout and Site Warden training, AOD, COSS and ES training, Protection Controller training, Small Plant training and On Site Competency assessments (COSS and IWA). And these are just a few of our courses - if there is something you can’t see on the list then simply give us a call for more information and we’ll develop a bespoke railway training course for your specific needs. We believe that working on the railway starts with basic track safety, which is why our comprehensive PTS course covers areas from railway terminology to safe infrastructure assessment and what to do in the event of an emergency. This course lays the foundations for you to work up the ranks with many of our other courses such as Lookout (LKT) and Handsignaller training, skills that no railway construction team should be without and which has the potential to save lives. Would you like a position that offers more responsibility? Our Controller of Site Safety (COSS) course offers the perfect environment for you to learn how to maintain a safe system of work and manage the safety of those around you, by warning of oncoming trains and implementing things like line blockages and warning signs. In line with this, Engineering Supervisor training from Renown Training will teach candidates how to effectively manage an engineer’s worksite. Prefer to work alone? Our Individual Working Alone (IWA) railway training course offers the very best coaching on maintaining a safe system of work whilst unaccompanied, and is also a great base course for those thinking about working up to Auxiliary Operating Duties such as Handsignaller, Level Crossing Attendant and Points Operator. And don’t forget our CSCS card training, a skill which no railway construction worker should be without. As well as improving your own personal competency, CSCS card training could help save the lives of your colleagues by teaching vital health and safety skills, provide evidence of your competence to potential new employers and improve your basic construction skills. Available on request, this course makes for pressure-free day where we’ll provide a refreshments break, work at your own individual pace and offer comprehensive coverage with both theory and practical tests. Do we sound like the training company for you? Don’t hesitate to visit for more information about our range of comprehensive courses.
