RTIS recruit & develop further trainee Signalling Engineers

Trainee Signalling EngineersRT Infrastructure Solutions (RTIS) is pleased to announce that they have recently recruited a further 4 trainee signalling engineers to add to its growing signalling workforce. The trainees have been recruited to supplement the company's main core business and this is the first of many planned intakes over the next 12 month period. RTIS aims to progress it new recruits through the ranks to eventually become the company's IRSE Signalling Team Leaders and Installers of the future.

The trainees will begin an intensive training program on the 15th July 2013 that includes PTS, Signalling Appreciation, Basic Signalling 1, Electrical Principles 1, Diagram Reading, E.I.S.S, Confined Spaces, Signalling Plant, Manual Handling, First Aid and SPWEE. The courses are a mixture of both technical and practical assessments with candidates learning key skills that will be required for their roles on the railway infrastructure.

The latest trainees were selected from over 50 applicants hoping to become a part of RTIS's accelerated signalling training programme. Simon Jamieson, RTIS C.E.O. said "Our trainees were selected using a combination of both technical and non-technical vocational testing techniques. Our last 4 trainee programs have included people from all walks of life, although transferable skills have been of benefit. Recent programs have included many ex-MOD personnel and we will continue to recruit fresh people into our business, with RT Training Solutions providing our competent in-house training. We expect everybody to reach the very high standards that are expected of our employees."

"We have also been working pro-actively on instilling our company values and work place behaviours into our new trainees. We believe that the extra efforts we are placing on these softer issues will continue to ensure we produce first-class signalling engineers for both our existing and future customers."
