Lloyd Rail continues to invest heavily in the recruitment and training of staff. OTM staff undergo a minimum 3 year training programme and this, combined with the projected future demand from our clients makes it a business imperative that we recruit and train staff who will be fully qualified and gain the practical knowledge gained by senior staff to meet this demand. In cooperation with City & Guilds, Lloyd Rail has put in place an intensive training programme for formal qualification of OTM operators. On-the-job training alongside senior operators ensures transfer of knowledge into the next generation.

Despite the current economic environment, Lloyd Rail has increased staff levels by 30% over the past 24 months. Senior staff are being trained in new technologies on an ongoing basis. Trainee operators are undergoing a planned training programme to equip them with the required levels of skills and certification that will allow them act as fully competent machine operators, fitters and electricians. All of our trainee operators are either fully qualified rail machinery fitters and or electronics technicians and others have significant computer skills.

The training programme is a three year process and our trainees are currently staggered through this training regime with the first trainees to join Lloyd Rail now passed out and fully qualified.

As a certified City & Guilds training centre formal examination and certification of trainees is conducted in house by Lloyd Rails fully qualified trainers and assessors and the entire process is monitored by our Health & Safety and Training Delivery Manager.
