New Rail qualifications for Ex-Forces personnel

Over the past 18 months, NTAR has been working with the Rail industry to develop a portfolio of training which will assist Ex-Forces personnel into a second career in the Rail industry.

The qualifications allow Ex-Forces to utilise their transferable skills and attributes gained whilst serving, and provide introductory knowledge and practical skill requirements for the maintenance of Traction and Rolling Stock Systems.

Developed by NTAR and accredited by EAL - the specialist employer recognised awarding organisation for engineering manufacturing, building services, and related sectors.

  • The qualifications are eligible for ELCAS funding and are accredited at Level 3

Step into Rail: 

  • The National Training Academy for Rail (NTAR) will be holding a series of one-day events at their purpose built training facility in Northampton

The main focus of the days will be engineering; however, NTAR will also be promoting other roles that require a range of skills sets, suitable for recruits from all ranks.

NTAR will be showcasing these training opportunities, alongside potential employers, at a series of Step Into Rail Open Days
