AssessTech is a certified City & Guilds centre offering training and qualifications in a broad range of subjects.

We deal with subjects related to Competence Management and the railway industry more 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.

All of our course synopsises are available on the online catalogue that forms part fo the AssessTech Knowledge base.  

Here you can find detailed information about all of our trainer-led courses, online eCourses, free mini courses and interactive training aids. You can download overviews and find out how to book.


We can deliver our whole training course portfolio either in-person at your facilities or remotely using online video conferencing software (Zoom or Teams).

Both approaches have their advantages – its a matter of customer choice. However, we  have invested in technology and worked hard to ensure the experience is equivalent for all the learners regardless of the method of delivery. We’ve even made online versions of our interactive training aids, so delegates can still get the benefit of gamification whilst attending online. There are some video snippets of online game play below.

We are currently conducting all course final assessments remotely via a video call and this has allowed us to maintain course prices for our customers in spite of rising costs.

A 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 and we have just launched new online versions to support remote training too.


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 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!


Following recent developments with Coronavirus and the need to socially distance, we are now delivering all of our training remotely using video conferences.  As part of this we have made online versions of the games that can be played remotely.
