THE Institution of Railway Signal Engineers is inviting candidates to book their place for its new, industry-recognised certificate in railway control engineering fundamentals, being held online this October.

Registration closes on July 31, and the 90-minute multiple choice exam is open to non-IRSE members.

The certificate gives candidates who may be new to the industry, and those with transferrable skills from other railway disciplines and allied industries, the opportunity to gain a recognised entry-level qualification. It’s also the first stage towards IRSE membership, and the pre-qualifier for further modules of the institution’s professional exam.

The entry fee is £110 and can be paid at the time of booking. Candidates must first register their details on the IRSE website before booking.
