RTIS employees move into SWTH roles

We are pleased to announce that throughout May/June we have continued to build in the traditions instilled within our company by developing and growing selected members of our workforce into key SWTH roles. Under the professional guidance of RTIS Testing and Commissioning Director John Marshall, our existing SMTH and installation staff have been brought up to Verification (Mod 3c) & Test Assistant (Mod 5) levels. This fantastic development has created multi-skilled staff within RTIS, who are able to now work between installation & testing requirements as and when required by our customers.

After a period of further trackside experience, selected staff (with underpinning SMTH experience) will then move into Mod 4 roles. To date the successful RTIS candidates in Mod 3C & Mod 5 courses are Andrew Pegg, Dave Dyer, Richard Richter, Liam Soar, Tony Church, Dean Bolt, Allan Deal, Simon Brett and Sam Allen. Says John Marshall “I am extremely excited by this unique opportunity to personally train, develop and mentor our future Signal Works Testing workforce. By passing on my experience, which covers many different aspects of signalling control systems, I hope to build a solid foundation of testers who through competence and professionalism alone will be regarded as one of the best within the UK rail industry.”

RTIS CEO Simon Jamieson says,  “Around 6 months ago Network Rail challenged the rail industry to invest and introduce new SWTH engineers to help overcome what is a very limited resource pool within the UK market. Whilst we are not solving the rail industry’s national shortage of SWTH staff, we are in our own way helping to assist the ever increasing demands for these complex skills. Our long term aim is to eventually develop several of our new testing staff into Tester in Charge roles within their own right. With John Marshall’s support and experience to help mentor all of our SWTH competent staff, I firmly believe this is achievable over the next Network Rail Control Period and look forward to this aspect of our business bringing further success to everyone within RTIS.”
