Learn to install and wire signalling equipment and gain nationally recognised units of competency. 

The install and wire rail signal equipment course is for Certificate III Electricians wishing to specialise in rail signalling.  

The nationally recognised units are suitable for those working as signalling tester/installers who require formal recognition under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). 

The Broadmeadow training centre has been custom built for the delivery of this course and provides students with the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in a safe, controlled environment.  This course has been designed for electricians who have completed or are enrolled in UEE30811 Certificate III in Electrotechnology - Electrician and provides specialist knowledge in the area of rail signalling.

Our rail signalling trainers are senior signal engineers and experts in their field.  They remain active in industry and have extensive experience applying current skills and knowledge in the live railway environment. 

Who Should Enrol?

Install and Wire Rail Signal Equipment is suitable for tradespeople such as electricians, signalling installers/certifiers, signal technicians, signal electricians and apprentices.  If you have experience in rail signalling but no formal education, this course can provide you with the skills and knowledge to further your career and job opportunities. 

With the wider adoption of national Rail Safety Law, many operators now require nationally recognised unit for those undertaking rail signalling installation roles.  

The course is suitable for those currently working in the railway signalling environment. This course is appropriate for technicians or electricians who have completed or are enrolled in UEE30811 Certificate III in Electrotechnology - Electrician.
