Rail signalling training and resource development specialist

John is one of HRD’s most experienced rail signalling training delivery and design team members. For breadth of experience and knowledge of rail signalling, signalling equipment and processes and technical training, John is without peer.

Prior to joining HRD in 2011 John forged a 30+ year career in rail signalling in technical, maintenance, management and training roles.

Beginning as an apprentice with the then Victorian Railways, John progressed through maintenance and supervisory roles and subsequently into training roles with the Victorian Public Transport Corporation.

After a brief stint as Manager of Quality, OH&S and Environmental systems for United Group, and roles with two Australian signalling system manufacturers, John joined V/Line as Signalling Competency Manager. This latter role brought John into contact with Phil Nankervis and, ultimately, a position with HRD.

The rail industry nationally now benefits from John’s wealth of knowledge and experience. He has delivered HRD rail signalling training to enterprises as diverse as the WA Public Transport Authority to ARTC in NSW.
