The Transport and Logistics Training Package (Release 7.0) has been endorsed for implementation.
The revised Training Package addresses new technologies and skill requirements of Network Control, Passenger Train Guard & Network Fault Support operators.
The Certificate IV in Rail Network Control and the Certificate IV in Tram/Light Rail Control qualifications have been amalgamated into a single qualification for network controllers, enabling workforce mobility across rail and light rail sectors. The Certificate III Passenger Train Guard Qualification now caters for train guards operating on either diesel or electric trains.
New Skill Sets and two Units of Competency have been created to better equip remote first line responders to quickly remedy conventional network faults and system breakdowns, and to provide remote respondents the skills and knowledge to remedy unconventional network faults and system breakdowns related to rail vehicles.
The approved Training Package materials are now available on training.gov.au.
