ENHANCE YOUR KNOWLEDGE

Sometimes the smallest steps in the right direction...ends up being the biggest leap of your life!

Engineers with little or no exposure to data networking.

Basic appreciation of electronics principals and mathematics. Technicians looking to gain a base level of knowledge across all aspects of data networking or where data networking overlaps onto their main job role.

Practical and theory work plus assessment

On completion of the course, the delegate will be able to identify all major building blocks of data networks, protocols and the hardware used within them. The meaning of all common acronyms and terminology will be explained and put into context. All the theory covered will be reinforced with practical demonstrations.

I really enjoyed the course and the instructors were excellent in the way they put the course over. The facilities were excellent and the course was taught to a very high standard. - Neil Silcox

DID YOU KNOW THAT PTS IS A MANDATORY REQUIREMENT TOGETHER WITH AN ICI TO WORK ON THE RAILWAY INFRASTRUCTURE IN THE UK?

The UK rail industry employs more than 190,000 people, from train drivers and station staff to those responsible for managing and maintaining the network’s 20,000 miles of track - this means enormous career opportunities are waiting for you!
We offer guaranteed sponsorship enabling you to complete the PTS

PTS ensures that rail workers are aware of their surroundings, are able to move around the lineside safely and are able to react appropriately to circumstances (e.g. the approach of a train).

PTS is not ELCAS accredited and does not form part of ELC funding. However, you are able to use your Standard Learning Credits (SLC) towards the cost of the course.
