Important Information





Upon successful completion of the theory training, each participant will receive a logbook to continue practical training under the guidance of a supervisor. The logbook will facilitate the collection of evidence in the field, focusing on 10 welds and adjust rail experiences.

To ensure validity, each entry in the logbook must be signed off by a qualified supervisor who holds the relevant qualifications and is currently certified in welding and rail adjustment. This process ensures that participants receive comprehensive hands-on training and validation of their practical skills.
Once the logbook entries are signed off and deemed ready for assessment, ATS will coordinate a scheduled day to conduct the initial assessment. During this assessment, participants will have the opportunity to demonstrate their acquired skills and knowledge, validating their readiness for certification or further training as necessary.
The initial assessment conducted by ATS must take place onsite, ensuring that participants can showcase their skills and knowledge in a real-world environment. This approach allows for a more accurate evaluation of their capabilities and ensures compliance with industry standards and requirements. An additional cost of $700.00 will be charged for scheduling the assessment sign-off per student.
