Flexible, tailored and competitively priced packages

John Holland works closely with organisations and individuals to provide an extensive suite of accredited and non-accredited training. We understand that training solutions must be flexible and customised to respond to the diverse demands of the rail industry. Accordingly, we tailor our programs to cover all core and technical rail competencies.

Participants benefit from nationally accredited qualifications that target their professional needs and which are transferable within the industry.
