ABOUT US

AssessTech is a technology and training company specialising in all aspects of Competence Management for the Railway Industry.

We believe in Developmental Competence Management, which is a continuous process that achieves lower business risk and a reduction in incident rates through targeted training and development of people.

We supply hosted systems and services to Train Operating Companies, giving them better visibility of their competence related data, which along with complementary training and consulting, means they are better able to assess risk, manage incidents and target spending accordingly.

AssessTech Ltd. was established in 2008 and we are members of the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB).
