How We Started

Doctore On Track Training Services Ltd (more commonly known as DOTTS) was originally founded in 2016 by Chris Baker as the sole trainer delivering both Rail and Construction training to a handful of clients.

Late 2019, Chris and Katie joined forces with an aspiration to become a reputable and industry leading OTP training provider, and as such NSAR status was officially awarded in September 2020.

In three years, the Company has grown significantly, recruiting and attracting the very best trainers in the UK for delivering OTP, supported by a highly diligent and hard working administration team.

Fun Fact!

The origin of the company name, Doctore (pronounced Doc-Tor-Rae) On Track Training Services, was taken from inspiration from the film Spartacus. A Doctore is the title given to the lead trainer of the Gladiators in a Ludas, which is the Latin name for Training Academy. A Doctore is one who has served as a skilled gladiator in his earlier days, much like the trainer/assessors, with years served as Plant Operators and furthermore as industry experienced trainer/instructors.
