RAIL Traffic Pilot

Project scope

 

This project will develop one new Unit of Competency and a Skill Set for Rail Traffic Pilots.

 

The industry is experiencing rapid infrastructure growth and investment that requires skills development to ensure our rail networks remain safe for traditional and autonomous rail traffic and the community.

 

Rail traffic pilots help ensure safe, efficient, and effective rail traffic movement across rail networks under a variety of circumstances.

 

Currently there is no skill set for a rail traffic pilot who is not involved within track authority limits, i.e., a rail traffic pilot on the main line not involved with track work.

 

Given the vastness of the rail infrastructure work currently happening in Australia this is a skill that will be in demand over the next five years as new projects come online.

 

VIEW CASE FOR CHANGE

 

The Rail Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed for this project.

 

If you have any questions about this project, or are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC for this project, please contact the Industry Skills Manager.
