Welcome to PM Training and Assessing

We are Paul and Pam Martin and we set up PM Training and Assessing in 2005 to provide assessor training to those in railway signalling.


We have expanded and we now provide all the Trainer, Assessor and IQA (TAQA) qualifications, as well as Professional Development Courses.


In 2009 we set up our IRSE Assessing Agency.  We have completed over 2,000 IRSE assessments and have over 100 assessors across the UK.


In 2018, following the collapse of Carillion, Paul joined the business full time and we are now expanding into Signalling Training and Apprenticeships. 


Please do get in contact with us for more information about our services and courses.

A Massive Achievement  
Congratulations to Paul who has become a chartered engineer after 33 years of work and dedication. This is especially noteworthy since Paul was a school dropout and has worked his way up from the bottom. A fantastic achievement.
