ES Initial Training Course

This course is designed to train persons who have been nominated by their line manager/sponsor to enable them to attain the Engineering Supervisor (ES) competence. The ES competence is required to be held by anyone who is required to set up and manage a worksite within an engineering possession on the rail infrastructure under the direction of a Person in Charge of Possession (PICOP). This includes the management of on and off-tracking On Track Plant (OTP) and train movements within the designated worksite.

The ES course will take delegates through the procedures as set out in the Rule Book; Handbook 12 (Duties of the engineering supervisor) and Handbook 13 (Duties of the person in charge of the siding). The course includes the importance of using the correct communication protocols and adopting the appropriate behaviours to be able to carry out this role safely and 6 effectively.

At the end of the training the delegate will be able to: Develop an understanding of what is required to be in charge of a work-site within a possession: to establish, maintain and give up work-sites and authorise the movement of trains into or within the work-site.

Delegates will have access to their own private canteen with cooking facilities, refrigerators and card accepting vending machines.
