Welcome to PM Training and Assessing

How We Started

PM Training & Assessing was set up in 2005 initially to provide assessor training to those individuals working in railway signalling. Then in 2009 we decided to set up our own IRSE Assessing Agency and we are now the largest independent IRSE Assessment centre in the UK. We are also a Bronze Assured Provider in signalling training under the National Skills Academy Rail's (NSAR) Rail Training Assurance Scheme (RTAS).


We have hundreds of qualified assessors who work across the UK and abroad and we provide an extensive range of training courses across rail, energy and other industry sectors which include:

  • Rail - Assessments for IRSE Licences for Engineering Managers & Senior Managers.
