IRSE

The Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE), is an international organisation acting as the professional institution for all those engaged in railway signalling and telecommunications, and allied disciplines.

The IRSE assessable categories that we can currently arrange are detailed below.

1.2.100 – Assistant Signalling Installer

Covers installing and wiring signalling or control systems equipment under the direction of a licensed signalling installer.

1.2.105 – Point Fitter

Covers installing and maintaining at least one, (two if one is mechanical), of the following types of points: Mechanical, Electrical, Pneumatic, or Hydraulic and other associated equipment. Capable of performing basic electrical integrity checks, to check the function and set-up of the installed detection components. Capable of setting up safe systems of work at all times.

1.2.140 – Signalling Manager(s)

Covers managing installation groups, each consisting of a number of teams engaged in the installation of signalling equipment.

1.8.100 – Signalling Team Leader

Covers organising and controlling work activities of a team or teams; ensuring that sufficient resources are available and contributing to technical leadership on engineering activities; and also responsible for the work of the team and the handover to others.

The holding of the Signalling Installer licence is a pre-requisite for this licence for leaders of installation teams.

1.4.100 – Assistant Signalling Maintainer

Covers the role of maintaining and rectifying signalling or control systems equipment under the direction of a licensed maintainer.

1.4.110 – Signalling Maintainer

Signalling Maintainers will be capable of maintaining or rectifying signalling systems and equipment, completing integrity checks on their own work, instigating testing where necessary and identifying where independent testing is required.

1.4.160 Maintenance Tester(s)

Signalling Maintenance Testers will be responsible for undertaking the testing activities in support of the maintenance of operational signalling equipment.Whilst undertaking testing activities they will;

  • Identify the testing requirements
  • Undertake defined tests
  • Identify where systems and equipments are not to specification

Provide suitable and sufficient evidence to confirm that the renewed and repaired signalling equipment is fit for entry into service.

1.4.230 – Combined Signalling Maintainer and Fault Finder

Combined Signalling Maintainers & Fault Finders will be capable of maintaining or rectifying signalling systems and equipment, completing integrity checks on their own work, instigating testing where necessary and identifying where independent testing is required.

They will be capable of locating and diagnosing faults in signalling systems and equipment where the preservation of evidence is not necessarily required.

The type and range of problems and faults cover both simple and complex faults due to environmental factors, ageing, human error, inherent design problems and may be either right side or wrong side failures.

1.3.150 – Test Assistant

Covers the role of undertaking tests under direction on signalling components and equipment in accordance with the test specifications and plans.

1.3.155X – Signalling Verification Tester – Operational Environment

A Signalling Verification Tester (operational railway) is responsible for undertaking tests on signalling components and equipment in accordance with the test specifications and plans (typically in preparation for Functional Testing) in the operational railway environment. The Verification Tester is given the test plan for the work to be completed, rather than being required to develop it. For verification testing in the non-operational environment use licence 1.3.155Y “Factory verification tester”.

1.3.155Y – Signalling Verification Tester – Non-Operational Environment

A Factory Signalling Verification Tester is responsible for undertaking tests on signalling components and equipment in accordance with the test specifications and plans (typically in preparation for Functional Testing) in a non-operational railway environment. The Verification Tester is given the test plan for the work to be completed, rather than being required to develop it. For verification testing in the operational environment use licence 1.3.155X

1.3.170 – Signalling Functional Tester

Covers the role of undertaking the testing and inspection activities of signalling systems and equipment to provide suitable and sufficient evidence to confirm that they comply with the design specification, meet the requirements appropriate to the application and are fit for entry into service.
