blood pressure test
If you want to get the PTS certificate go to the Office of Rail Regulation. They will tell you from which medical center or even hospital you can certify that test.
how can I book test
If you can't get started try looking at some training websites like Coursesplus and Emagister for 'PTS Training'
Hey guys, ok so this isn't about the actual certificate, but more about the test questions you will need to pass for the PTS.
Some are mandatory for all staff to know, while others are from other tests. Anyway, have a look:
Remember your. Clearances,signs, badges eg coss lookout es. Emergency phone. Types of phone. Track lay out. Dc/ac
Read G1 module of the rule book available on rgsonline website
just pay attention in class and you'll be fine,
1/ How many lines are you allowed to cross that are open, whilst only holding pts and you are alone?
2/ Same question with a COSS and three PTS holders?
3/ When are you supposed to check railway fog signals (detonators)?
4/ Positions of safety at
b) 101-125 MPH
c) >125 MPH
Think about c)
5/ Separated green zone, minimum distance with COSS + 1 and no site warden?
6/ Level crossing, CCTV, bang road (wrong direction for all you newbies) what colored flag would you receive from the LC attendant?
7/ When is a route setting agent required to be appointed?
8/ In the 1950 edition of the rule book, was it allowable to raise two arms above your head to indicate to a driver to stop in an emergency situation?
9/ Whilst carrying out emergency detonator protection of the line, upon reaching a tunnel, what should you do? Answer in full without reference to th rule book module G1 page 33-35.
10/In engineers line reference, what does the following mean?
d) DCL (easy one)
e) SWM (another easy one)
Q3 I was looking for the first week in September. But what other month did the rule book used to state?
Q4, now a position of safety is associated with red zone, what are you not allowed to do >125mph, work red zone. So to answer that correctly you should have said red zone working is banned over 125. However, there is no withdrawal of >125 position of safety, the ban on red zone working over 125 superseeds this and can be withdrawn at any time.
Q9, the correct answer is if the full protection distance falls within the tunnel, then place three dets (yes, 20yards apart) then proceed through the tunnnel. This means if the full protection distance is the other side of the tunnel, then you can walk around.
The other answers are correct.
Is that stated in module G2?
Anyway, to keep the ball rolling, some more easy ones...
1- Can a train Propel within a worksite and when?
2- When can a T3 possession be taken round a train?
3- Do AHB/CCTV/MCB crossings need to be taken under local control during a possession of the line?
4- How many types of T2 protection are there? Name them for extra credit
5- What is the maximum permissable speed for a train with a non operable headlight?
6- What is a RIO and whats is its function?
7- What is a RT3973 form and how many types are there?. Name them for extra credit
8- What must the driver of an engineering train have in his possesion before leaving a worksite/possession and who issues it?
9 -What is a command structure and what does it consist of?
Gold, silver and bronze, Gold what will be done, silver how it will be done and bronze is on site doing it.
Not, it is not stated in G2. There is no >125 stated, it has been withdrawn because the ban on red zone working has supeceeded this.
Where do I get a sponsor to do my pts please ??
I would like to find out what the difference is between a ten day Pts course and a two day course?
