With our approach to problem solving both innovative and creative, we have developed a pioneering system called OCTAS - Online Competence and Training Administration System.

OCTAS is a unique online training booking system that has been designed to save you both time and money, so that you can book rail training events quickly.

Users of OCTAS who have been granted exclusive access to book Sentinel initial or recertification training are now benefitting from receiving not only quality training service but also efficient administration.

Key features of the system include:

  • Easily accessible and simple to use
  • Instant visibility of training events and availability
  • Instant joining instructions
  • No phone calls required
  • No booking forms

We can offer you one of three different packages:

  1. A managed service - Competence & Training Management
  2. An online booking service - Book courses online yourself
  3. A tailored service to meet your business requirements

Access to OCTAS is available after you have received a live demonstration of the system.
