Just wanted to say well done to those who recently sat their DMIs and successfully passed. I recently received a call from MTR after sitting my DMI back in September and it appears that training will commence from March 2020 onwards.
Can't wait to begin now, once again just want to say thanks to all those who contributed in the forum that helped many of us get to this point.
congrats. did u pass your DMI recently and was it for OOC depot. I passed my DMI a couple weeks back but wasn't given a date for training as of yet. just that it should be in 2020.
CongratulationsOnce you sign your contract and complete your Welcome Pack, you should receive a call to book your Medical- which is within a week and A DBS link sent to your email for you to complete also within a week-
I kept chasing my HR department to complete and send back my ref checks immediately.
Both Medical and DBS was completed within 1 Week but can take longer If your current employer is slow to respond.
If both are satisfactory; you will get an Email to come in for a Uniform fitting.

ah ok thanks, hopefully not too long of a wait then. Also, was this for Old Oak Common depot?Hi,
I completed my DMI around two weeks ago but was initially told I would be in the talent pool until sometime 2020 (informally was told this would likely be summer 2020).
Received official offer last week.
Hopefully you wont be waiting too much longer.
I currently work for MTR and I’ve seen a driver wear hearing aids. I don’t know what standard is set when applying though.Hi all,
Can anyone help with my concern. I've been searching and reading what's online but seems very contradicted. I wanted to know if MTR allow Trainee Train Drives to wear hearing aid when joining the company. I have moderate hearing loss in one of my ear. I know some TOCs out there allow drivers to wear them but wasn't sure if MTR did? RSSB guidance is not tic specific.
If anyone has joined MTR recently who does wear hearing aid, how was the medical (hearing) test conducted.
Any help will be appreciated.

Yeah I spoke to someone today. Nothing for the first half of the year and nothing confirmed as of yet for the second half. I guess we'll have to wait for now.Talking to someone at MTR, they have a group which started this week ??? or sometime in Jan and another will start in March which will be group 39. I don't think they are taking anymore, but holding people in a talent pool for natural wasted. Saying that though, the railway does change from day to day, but there are hundreds of newbies and trainees out and about at the moment.
There was quite a few that went to Maidenhead from Old Oak.
