CompetencyCompetency Australia is a leader in the area of competence assessment for rail safety workers and continues to set a benchmark for excellence in this field.

Organisations employ Competency Australia to carry out their assessments because they know they will have consistent assessments, employing flexible approaches to meet individuals needs whilst ensuring consistency and rigor in the assessment process.

Our long standing clients keep coming back, and continue to recommend us to new clients.

Competency Australia's assessors are approved by multiple rail operators to conduct assessments, including ARTC, MTM and TfNSW. 

Electrical DesignIt is not just field staff who are considered 'Rail Safety Workers' under the Rail Safety Act 2012.  Design staff, even if they never leave the office, are also Rail Safety Workers (to find out more, read our article here). 

If you are performing design or verification work in the electrical or ICT area for ARTC, you must be assessed for this role.  Competency Australia's assessors have been approved by ARTC to conduct these assessments for contractors - contact us at any time for assistance with the process or to conduct the assessment for you.
