INDUSTRY SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS NEEDED

Work on this project has commenced and the Rail IRC is forming a TAC.  

Your rail industry expertise is needed to assist in the review of the Certificate III Electric Passenger Train Guard Qualification and to develop a stream that caters for the diesel mode of power train guards. The review will incorporate new technologies and on board Customer Service skills.

TAC nominations closed on Friday, 12 July 2019

For more information about this project please contact the Industry Manager. 

Background

The Rail Industry Reference Committee (IRC) has proposed a project to review the Certificate III Electric Passenger Train Guard Qualification and to develop a stream that caters for the diesel mode of power train guards or on board Customer Service roles. The review will also incorporate relevant technologies that have been incorporated into these job roles.

Increasing public demand for rail transport and the various types of rail powered passenger options has led to industry requesting the addition of a stream for diesel powered passenger train guards to be added to the existing qualification. New technologies in use by rail operators will also be included into the Units of Competency where applicable. The differing skills required between the electric and diesel modes of power will be addressed in the qualification review.

The Case for Endorsement is expected to be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) by 30 June 2020.
