Level Crossing Grad Dip Program

The nationally recognised training course - 10780NAT Graduate Diploma of Railway Signalling is now available through Competency Australia.

Since the discontinuation of the Graduate Diploma of Railway Signalling offered through Central Queensland University (CQU), we have worked with Rail Innovation Australia (RIA), CQU and the Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE) Australiasia to gain course accreditation under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). 

The course is appropriate for individuals working in the fields of signalling design, signalling maintenance, signalling construction, control systems and project engineering within the railway environment.

The course material has been developed by experienced railway signal engineers and practitioners who are members of the Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE) Australasian Section.  The course material is owned by the IRSE and Rail CRC Participants and licenced to Competency Australia.
