Shannon Rail Services offers a wide range of approved training courses for Network Rail competencies.

Our training staff include railway professionals with many years’ experience whose skills and qualifications are subject to an on-going regime of refreshment and development.

This is reflected in our NSARE ranking and the high demand for places on our training courses.

Available courses (initial and recertification):


PTS Practical & DCCR / Lookout / ES / Hand Signaller / IWA / PC / COSS & DCCR


If you are a Network Rail Link-up approved company and a sponsor for PTS staff please contact us for details of the latest timetable and availability of places (please note that we are not able to deal with enquiries directly from individuals).


Full joining instructions will be sent at time of booking and it is essential that these are fully complied with as otherwise we will have no option but to refuse admission to the course for candidates who have arrived late or who have not brought the required PPE and documentation with them (fees non-refundable).
