During the three year scheme as a Track Apprentice you will attend block release training to learn the more advanced skills of your technical specialism.
Build and develop an understanding of:
Track geometry including track gauge, alignment, elevation, curvature and track surface and the impact of train wheels;
The requirements, methods and techniques for the installation and maintenance of the track (rail, fastenings, sleepers) and the load bearing capacity of the track foundation;
The impact of the railway environment e.g. tunnels, embankments, vegetation and drainage.
On completion of this qualification you will be able to undertake detailed inspection and analyse the performance and condition of track and conductor rail systems, diagnose and correct faults and be able to use track specific plant and equipment.
