Hans Breet’s technical experience approaches 10 years as a signal maintenance technician on Victoria’s metropolitan rail network. During his employment with Mainco/MetroTrains Melbourne Hans played a significant part in major urban rail renewal projects as well as performing regular signal systems maintenance.
It’s up-to-date knowledge and experience that’s invaluable to HRD’s rail signalling training and to Hans’s interaction with learners.
Interestingly, Hans completed his off-the-job rail signalling training with HRD Integrated Services and graduated with the Certificate IV in Rail and Tram Signal Systems.
Prior to training as a signal maintenance technician, Hans completed an apprenticship as an electrician. This led him into later roles as diverse as a self-employed electrical contractor; as an electrician with the prestigious Langham Hotel in Melbourne; and as an automotive electrician with London United Busways.
Hans is also part of the delivery team for high voltage training to the rail industry.
