As part of the above, there will be full training on the systems and procedures that you will be required to carry out which will take place in the Midlands. As a result, you will need to be flexible to stay away from home for an initial 3 to 4-week period whilst this training is completed during week days.
You will understand the use of testing equipment such as multimeters, flukes and muggers and be able to read and understand schematic diagrams to carry out maintenance duties.


You will need to have an NVQ Level 3 to qualify for this role. This does not have to be a rail specific NVQ but will need to be one of a mechanical, electrical or engineering based nature.
