About us

AssessTech is a technology and training company specialising in all aspects of Competence Management for the Railway Industry.

We believe in Developmental Competence Management, which is a continuous process that achieves lower business risk and a reduction in incident rates through targeted training and development of people. This is at the heart of everything AssessTech does.  It’s the basis of our approach to helping make the Railway a safer place. It’s all about putting the candidate front and centre of the process, focussing on their needs and encouraging them to own their own competence.

By using a grading system and focussing on areas for improvement Assessors can inspire Candidates towards professional and personal development and gain huge benefits for the business.

We supply hosted systems and services to Train Operating Companies, giving them better visibility of their competence related data, which along with complementary training and consulting, means they are better able to assess risk, manage incidents and target spending accordingly.

AssessTech Ltd. was established in 2008 and we are members of the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB).

AssessTech User Forum 2023
Partnering with the Railway Industry; promoting a proactive approach

Our next User Forum taking place on Thursday 9th November at the Congress Centre in London will focus on how we can partner with the railway industry to adopt a more proactive approach to competence management.

Our theme this year will be partnering with the railway industry; promoting a proactive approach. We believe that safety can be improved if the industry works together to identify common challenges faced by TOCs, FOCs and other suppliers, to collectively develop solutions that will improve performance and reduce incidents.

The event will showcase some of our customers and partners who are already adopting a proactive approach and the impacts this is making around process improvements and efficiencies. We will explore the opportunities around Big Data, Power BI integration, Data Visualisation and Augmented Reality. There are new developments in our Learning Management System and we will look at how these can be used in conjunction with competence management.

Join us for a day of insights, learning, sharing best practice and networking with colleagues from across the industry. Early registration for the User Forum is now open so book now to secure your place.
