Competency Australia trains railway operators, signal electricians, engineers and managers.
Training and assessment by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 40647) online, or on real equipment in a safe, indoor environment.
Rail Safety Worker assessments are essential.
Approved by ARTC, MTM and TfNSW, we assess the competency of engineers, project managers, designers, signal electricians, electrical, communications and control systems personnel.
We assist organisations in the development and implementation of Competency Management Systems (CMS), including meeting the requirements to become an Authorised Engineering Organisation (AEO) with Asset Standards Authority (ASA).
Your Safety Management System has specific requirements. Competency Australia will customise training to meet your requirements. We can develop competency management systems, assess your rail safety workers and assist with documenting their competency.
A lot has changed in the railway industry in the past 10 years. Introduction of new legislation, including the National Rail Safety Law (2012) has brought with it new and more rigorous requirements for rail operators and rail safety workers.
The Rail Industry Worker (Rail Safety Worker, Pegasus) card has been adopted by many operators and is now managed through the Australiasian Rail Association. So, once you have your Rail Industry Worker (RIW) card you can work on the rail, right? Well, not exactly. For any rail safety role there are specific requirements for competencies, training and assessment. For some roles, Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications are mandatory. For others, specific licences are required.
Competency Australia is available to assist with any other questions you may have - just contact us on +612 4040 9110 and one of our representatives will assist.

We would like to congratulate you (Competency Australia) on a very well presented and informative course that myself and one of our signalling trainees attended. It was also very pleasing that you were able to accommodate one of our employees that suffers from dyslexia...once again congratulations and best wishes for future courses. Our company will definitely be using Competency Australia for further Staff Signalling Training.ST144 ARTC National Signal Safeworking Recertification Attendee
