Rail Training Package Update

Skill Sets create greater flexibility for workers to build on and be recognised for, the specific skills and knowledge required across different job roles.   Within rail workplaces, the Rail Safety National Law requires rail transport operators to ensure workers are competent to carry out their work.

To this end, TLI10 units of competency are fundamental to the operational skills needs in the rail sector. Often rail workers need to undertake training in more than one unit of competency to cover off the skills required for their job role.   By bringing together existing units of competency within training packages to create targeted Skill Sets, rail transport operators’ skills requirements for rail safety workers are addressed and comply with national rail safety legislation.  Skill Sets are not intended to replace qualifications but are designed to build vocational pathways – by bridging skills and knowledge gaps between job roles while satisfying organisational requirements.

Over the next two months TLISC will be reviewing TLI10 qualifications, Skills Sets and units of competency as part of moving the content to the Standards for Training Packages format.   The rail sector will review 53 Skill Sets to ensure they still meet rail sector needs and are relevant to the current rail workplace.  Skill Sets are an important part of this process to ensure rail workers are recognised for their skills within the sector and that these skills are transferable across industry sectors.

The following rail Skill Sets are being transitioned to the New Standards for Training Packages:
