PTS is a system of safer working practices employed within the UK that is designed to ensure the safety of railway workers who are going to work on or near the line.
The PTS Courses (which is where any rail maintenance career begins) can only be attended after the successful completion of the PTS Medical and a Drug & Alcohol Test. These tests are the requirements of NetworkRail for obvious safety reasons and are compulsory. A valid PTS Medical and PTS Drug & Alcohol are required throughout your entire rail career.
Any potential employee must undergo a PTS Medical and a Drug and Alcohol Test before attending a “Personal Track Safety” course. When you embark on your chosen rail career, you will be issued with a smartcard, which links you to your account on the NetworkRail online database – which is known as Sentinel – which holds details of the holders’ PTS Medical, Drug & Alcohol status and any training courses that have been successfully completed.

Ion Man has helped me to gain experience in the railway sector, they provided me with all the basic courses needed to start off within the industry. I done a PTS course, Track Induction etc. The delivery of the training was to high standards, the Trainer was professional and provided support when needed which made the course very easy and enjoyable to learn.
Needed to renew my D&A as soon as possible, Ion Man were able to see me on the same day, results came back very quickly and was uploaded straight away on my sentinel. Staff dealt with my query in a fast and professional way. I was very happy with the service I received, if you need fast reliable service Ion Man is the one.
I was recommended by a friend to this company where I had the opportunity to obtain my Sentinel card. They were very helpful throughout my course, they guided me in the right direction and helped me to gain the knowledge and experience required to work in the railway industry. Training was fast and reliable, would definitely recommend their service.
