Advanced Signalling Technology


This course is intended for experienced signal designers and testers who wish to progress towards the design or testing of complex signalling logic. 

Key Features

  • Course fully up to date to reflect current requirements
  • The course concentrates on understanding interlocking functionality, as well as 'filling in the boxes'
  • The delegate will benefit from experimentation on our demonstration interlockings
  • Technical jargon is explained in clear English terms
  • Intermediate level concepts are thoroughly revised before advancing to the 'advanced subjects


Course Outcomes

  • On successful completion of this course, the delegate will be able to:

    • Perform complex train dynamic calculations.
    • Accommodate the effects of acceleration, deceleration and gradient.
    • Determine the effects of station stops upon headway.
    • Derive solutions and aspect sequence charts for underbraking and aspect sequence transitions.
    • Identify junction signalling hazards and specify available solutions.
    • Describe and differentiate future train control concepts including Automatic Train Protection, Automatic Train Operation, Traffic Management, Driver Advisory System, Communications Based Train Control, European Train Control System ETCS and European Rail Traffic Management System ERTMS.
    • Demonstrate an understanding of common controls at different interlocking levels including route setting, aspect clearance, approach locking, sectional route locking and point interlocking.
    • Demonstrate how these common controls are implemented in standard Route Relay Interlocking RRI and Solid State Interlocking SSI technologies.
    • Solve complex control problems at the different interlocking levels using the two technologies.
    • Identify the  controls required for complex overlaps

Assessment and Certification

Achievement of the Course Outcomes will be assessed by a theory assessment to demonstrate the underpinning knowledge gained.

The delegate's achievement of the Course Outcomes will be confirmed by a certificate which will be forwarded to the nominated client contact following the course. 


A well prepared delegate is expected to be able to interpret signalling plans, demonstrate an understanding of standard interlocking principles, and complete control tables for simple routes and points.
