Become a member of ARTP

Membership of the ARTP is based on a policy of inclusion. That means all Training Providers and Assessment Providers within the railway industry are eligible. There is no other association that looks after the specific needs of Railway Training Providers or Assessors, but be prepared to put as much in as you take out.

Joining ARTP

Our present criteria for joining the association is a candidate must have financial probity and acknowledge that it will abide by the Rules of the Association, agree to uphold and develop professionalism in railway training and commit to the ARTP code of good conduct. You can read more about this in the ARTP Constitution document.

For those involved with track safety subjects, proof of approval to train by RTAS accreditation and RISQS registration is necessary. For those involved in other disciplines, evidence of cleared audit by a recognised audit body is preferred.

Applications should be sponsored by two current Members of the Association. The Membership application form must be completed fully and accompanied by a bank transfer to cover the Annual Subscription for the first year.
