Once a course has been booked and paid for you will be emailed all the information for the day. Please make sure that you print it, read it and have the candidate sign the relevant sections. This paperwork MUST be handed in on the day before the course commences.
Please Take Note
Locomotives are amazing pieces of machinery and are a joy to operate. However, they are hazardous places to be especially as you are dealing with diesel and oils. All candidates are advised to wear stout/sturdy footwear, ideally safety shoes/boots, an old pair of jeans and a long-sleeved shirt.
