This course encompasses three core elements: Personal Track Safety (PTS), DE Conductor Rail (DCCR), and Track Induction (TIC). The PTS Training is the foundational qualification for individuals aspiring to build a career within the Network Rail Infrastructure. It delves into AC, associated with overhead line workings, and is essential for those operating on or near the line within a proximity of 3 metres.
The DCCR competency is a prerequisite for those aiming to work in regions of the Network Rail infrastructure fitted with a third rail, a supplementary rail that provides electric current. This is primarily prevalent in areas such as London, Mersey Rail, and the Northern City Limits.
The Track Induction segment educates participants on tasks impacting the track’s geometry. It familiarises them with various work types and components utilised and executed on the Network Rail infrastructure.
