Signet Solutions are not a recruiting agency. We do not place people in jobs, nor will our Signal Engineering Training courses guarantee you any employment in the Rail Signalling industry.
Our specialised training courses are used by employers in the industry to train their staff to perform specialised job roles. Employers in the industry do not normally expect you to have attended this specialist training before you start employment.
As many candidates are eager to get a foot in the door we would generally advise against attending rail industry training courses in the hope of securing employment in the future. However, if you are determined to attend a course at your own expense, we would recommend our Introduction to Signalling (Basic Signalling 1 & 2) course which we offer on an Open Programme for individuals to attend.
This gives good underpinning knowledge which is needed to become a Signal Engineer. We also combine the BS1/2 with a Mod 5 Test Assistant course (see our course specifications for further information. Whilst we cannot guarantee employment and we would certainly recommend that you try to apply directly to Employers before spending your own personal funds where possible, however this may be an option for you to gain employment.
We recommend when applying for jobs within the rail industry that you apply to reputable organisations offering permanent jobs. Reputable organisations offering permanent jobs seek applicants with relevant academic qualifications and/ or suitable electrical and mechanical experience gained in other industries. They do not always seek applicants who have already attended specialised rail industry courses, however not averse to those with some underpinning knowledge.
Finally, beware of “jobs” websites advertising individual vacancies for permanent or short term positions. Such companies are not offering employment, they are seeking commission. They will tend to give poor advice in terms of training needs and employment prospects.Good Luck!
We will offer a competitive salary to suitable candidates. Our work is predominantly based at our Derby training centre but will involve travel to customer sites elsewhere from time to time.If you are interested, please send your CV and letter demonstrating how you meet the above criteria to
