Accredited Technician

Accredited Technician is available to those who are actively engaged in the profession and can demonstrate their competency in the field of signalling or telecommunications engineering through holding the appropriate IRSE licenses or a recognised competency qualification in engineering. Applicants should also be able to demonstrate current 'Responsible Experience'.

A ‘Responsible’ position is one entailing the exercise of professional engineering judgement in the field of railway signalling or telecommunications. This may include any of the following areas of work: • Research, feasibility studies and options evaluation • System, hardware or software development and manufacture • Applications engineering and/or data preparation • Verification, validation, testing or conformance assessment • Installation and commissioning • Maintenance and servicing • Definition and interpretation of standards, rules and regulations. A person in a ‘Responsible’ position is typically making decisions about an individual deliverable, such as a document, a design or a test.
