JMDR was established in 2008 and since its conception has become a leading supplier of Rail Signalling Services in Australia, India, and the United Kingdom. A leading factor in JMDR’s success has been its investment in the Professional Development & Training of its employees.

Training for our employees was not always readily available within the Sydney Region and we firmly believe that high quality industry recognised training should be accessible for any person working within the Rail Signalling Industry.With this in mind, we have an agreement in place with Sydney Trains & TfNSW to deliver a selection of their Signalling Courses on their behalf.

All participants attend and pass the course will receive a Statement of Attainment which will be accepted by Sydney Trains when submitted as part of an application for a Certificate of Competence.


Signalling courses that do not require a practical element can either be delivered at our Sydney CBD Office OR at the client’s site.Signalling courses that do contain a practical element will be delivered at Petersham Training Centre.

Signalling Principles 1 - Course Brochure to follow
