Bet you'll still run in to the same problem as before. They'll still require you to have a current A grade electricians licence.

Thanks for that, but not all of the railway signalling jobs have actually specified that they need somebody with an A grade electricians licence.

why dont you try getting a design job in the uk there are companies like westinghouse which have an offive in croydon, glasgow, chippingham, york and birmingham and they also have there sister company westinghouse australia.

So if you get 6 months at westinghouse UK then they might transfer you to Aus???

Worth a try.

Hi Richard

I work as a Signal Electrician for ARTC in the Hunter Valley NSW. Right now there is a lot of Signalling companies looking for Signal Electricians. Some of their names are ARTC, Works Infrastructure, O'Donnell Griffin, Transfield, John Hollands and Ansaldo (formally US&S). Ansaldo and ARTC are the only companies i know of that sponser people. Ansaldo is the easier of the two to get into and you only have to spend roughly 9 months to 'pay' their sponsership back so to speak. Ansaldo aren't the best payers in the world but once you've done your time anyone of the other companies would be happy to have you. To be a proper Signal Electrician you will have to get your Trade equivalent and pass the relevent Signalling courses but you would be able to work fine until then. Ansaldo roughly pay around $65,000 i think. The other information about ARTC somebody else wrote was pretty on the money. If you would like anymore information you can contact me at [email protected].

Cheers
