Final Rank: Corporal
Years Served: 12 Years and 6 Months
I served 12 years and 6 months in the British Army. Having achieved the rank of Corporal, I came to the point in my career where I wanted to settle down ready for family life.
After some research I found the railway was taking on trainee linesmen so I investigated this thoroughly. I found a course run by Akona. Its owner, Steve Ashley, was very helpful in finding out the things I needed to know before and during the course. The staff at Akona were like a tight little family, always happy to help in every way. The trainer, Barry Davies, has so much to teach and his knowledge of rail is unbelievable.
After completing the course and getting the qualification, I only had to wait for about two weeks before I was contacted by the Akona staff to invite me for an interview with one of the largest companies in the rail industry. Two weeks later I received an email from Akona saying I had been selected and I
am currently working on the railway, learning a new trade and meeting new challenges.
