AssessTech is a certified City & Guilds centre offering training and qualifications in a broad range of subjects related to Competence Management and the railway industry generally.

In addition to courses resulting in City and Guilds Accredited Qualifications (Awards and Certificates) we also offer non-accredited training programmes, a bespoke training programme design service and some cool training aids.

City & Guilds

Interactive Training Aids


An series of interactive tabletop simulations, played in the style of board games. 

We use these kits when we deliver training but they are also available as products to purchase as an addition to your in-house courses.

The Incident Recovery kit

This a really great way to train learners in how to respond to an incident, prevent escalation and maintain a good company reputation. It's been developed by AssessTech as a training aid for roles such as:

  • Train Operator Liaison Officer (TOLO)
  • Station Incident Officer (SIO)
  • Rail Incident Commander (RIC)

The Incident Cause kit

The incident cause model is often misunderstood or misused by those undertaking investigations. We have developed the Incident Cause Kit as both a training aid for new investigators and a standardisation tool for stimulating discussion amongst more experienced practictioners. 

It's a fun, friendly competition to 'beat' your colleagues and score points - guaranteed to cause a heated debate!
