    From base traction if a 150, 165/166 was 2 days classroom, 2 days driving with a DI and a 1 day pass out. 150 to IET was 8 days classroom, 4/5 days (up to 20 hours) driving with a DI, 1 day SIM day and 1 day driving pass out. totally really depends on traction.

    Safety Critical vs Non-Safety Critical Roles

    Most depends on the TOC in which you apply for. GWR’s revenue team are not safety critical, as there is no reason for them to go trackside. What sort of area would you be looking for; so we can all advise for your local TOCS rather than engaging in arguments over the same grades at different TOCS
