Gold Steam Award
This Award is delivered differently from Bronze and Silver awards. It is split into 3 Parts, each of which can be achieved (and a certificate awarded) separately. Each part is split into 5/6 modules, each of covers a different topic and is assessed individually. You can do the modules in any order, but Part 2 will assume knowledge gained in Part 1, etc.
To deliver this the society will sponsor a series of Training/Testing events where you will be able to learn a skill, see other sites and have a module assessed, if you think you are ready. This website also has an acculumation of materials and links to help you learn about each module's topic. To find this follow the links below.
The Gold Award has two versions, Steam and Non-Steam. The Non-Steam version covers driving all forms of locomotives other than steam engines and has extra content to compensate for the fact driving steam locomotives is more complex.
The requirements for both these versions are attached and we will be offering an extra bonus Platinium Award if you achieve both!
