Since privatisation of the railways and the departure of experienced civil engineering and permanent way staff, there has been an increasing scarcity of personnel with relevant qualifications and experience in the permanent way engineering discipline.

This affects not only production activities but also impacts on the ability to mentor new and less experienced personnel.

Neway Training Solutions also recognise that there has been limited investment in training and development and that there are people who require formal training to enhance skills attained from the workplace.

Neway Training Solutions only use trainers with extensive railway experience who can relate and apply their knowledge to all aspects of the civil engineering function from Basic Track Knowledge through to Permanent Way Engineer and Switch & Crossing Design.

Neway Training Solutions offer a range of courses covering both track maintenance and renewals together with associated courses to supplement these specific skills.

Neway Training Solutions can provide the following approved Network Rail courses:

  • Track Geometry 1
  • Supervisor’s Visual Track Inspection
  • Track Maintenance – Plain Line

  • Track Geometry Supervisor
