Meet the Team

Andy McKenna

Andy is a Trainer/Assessor for most of the sentinel railway competencies. He has a teaching background with colleges, but his career with railways comes from his passion for steam trains and heritage railways. He regularly drives steam trains so his knowledge of railways is two sided.

Training people with additional training needs has been of special interest of hers as she worked in the Deaf community for 12 years.
