Course Duration

A 1 day ‘test only’ can be carried out on candidates with relevant experience.

Training duration is dependent on the number of candidates, and each candidates previous experience.  Generally a novice candidate would require 2 days training on the Slinger Signaller (this is based on 3 candidates with little or no experience) however this could be reduced with relevant experience.


This course can be delivered with either NPORS or CPCS accreditation. On successful completion of the course candidates will therefore receive certification per their preference. For further information on these schemes, please click here.
