Rail trainingWe can also support customers with their specific training needs and regularly exchange apprentices with our customers to give a wider understanding of the industry and widen their engineering skills.

We currently offer a formal rail industry specific training programme, however can work with customers to support their training needs and goals.

The ‘Introduction to traction motor and MA set repair’ is a four day, hands on, workshop offering an introduction to the repair, maintenance and life extension of electromechanical assets in the rail industry. Alongside a general overview of traction motors and MA set repair, it provides an insight into the best practice rotating machine testing, fault diagnosis, general overhaul and major repair procedures.

Delivered via a mix of classroom and workshop sessions, participants will see traction motors (AC and DC), MA sets and inductor coils over the course of the four days’ and get the chance to participate in general overhaul, rewinding and fault diagnosis.

Suited to those who work in engineering and maintenance, on completion of the course participants will leave with the knowledge and confidence to identify faults, understand failure modes and recommend rectification work.
