 Aviation Training Package Update

Aviation Training Package Update

With the end of the year fast approaching, it’s time to reflect on what has been achieved during this year and what can be expected from 2015 for the AVI Aviation Training Package. A range of aviation training projects have commenced and are well underway. Notable project outcomes have included: new aviation safety materials designed to improve and enhance the skills of flight crew members and ground operations personnel; a broader suite of commercial pilot qualifications being finalised; and Defence and Airservices Australia have completed the Air Traffic Control qualification project that commenced in 2013.

Future industry advisory, steering committee and technical advisory group meetings for the first quarter of 2015 include:

3 February 2015 Aviation Safety Skills Steering Committee
February 2015 Aerodrome Operations Technical Advisory Group
February 2015 Ground Operations Steering Committee
February 2015 Aviation Advisory Committee

 

2015 marks the return of the Australian International Aerospace and Defence Exposition and International Airshow, to be held at Avalon Airport in Victoria from 24 February to 1 March. Australia’s aviation industry will be the front and centre of events during this time, so we intend to catch up with as many of our stakeholders as possible over that week. If you plan on visiting the Airshow, consider dropping in or calling us through the week to get the latest information on developments to the AVI Aviation Training Package.

If you wish to provide project or training package feedback or to find out how you can become involved with TLISC’s work, please contact Dan Minton, Senior Training Package Specialist – Aviation on 0459 021 115 or dan.minton@tlisc.org.au

To the aviation stakeholders, contributors and participants who have provided such invaluable support and effort to TLISC’s work during 2014, we thank you all. If you are travelling over the Christmas break, enjoy the hard-earned rest, and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2015.

Maritime Training Package Update

Marina Operations

The final draft of the Certificate III in Marina Operations and units of competency, developed specifically for incorporation in the qualification, were agreed by the Marina Operations Steering Committee on 26 November 2014. This qualification, which was developed to provide the skills required by people working in the marina industry who perform a range of tasks such as berthing, mooring and storage of vessels and a range of boatyard tasks have now been placed on the TLISC website.

MAR Maritime Training Package version 2.0

The Case for Endorsement for the Maritime Training Package version 2.0 was submitted to the Department of Industry on 25 November 2014, for consideration. The anticipated date for endorsement is late January 2015.

The submission includes:

  1. Radio Operators and Fast Rescue units of competency and Skill Sets
  2. Offshore Familiarisation units of competency and Skill Sets
  3. The Engineering, Engineer Watchkeeper, Marine Engine Driver (Steam) and Marine Surveying qualifications aligned to the Standards for Training Packages

The Case for Endorsement, units of competency and qualifications are available on the TLISC website.

TLISC would like to thank the Project Steering Committees that oversaw the development of these projects and would also like to thank everyone who provided feedback throughout the various phases of the projects.

In 2015 TLISC will continue to align the Integrated Ratings and Linespersons qualifications to the Standards for Training Packages. A steering committee meeting is proposed for early March 2015.

The Diploma of Maritime Operations (Watchkeeper Deck), Diploma of Maritime Operations (Master up to 500 GT) and the Advanced Diploma of Maritime Operations (Master Unlimited) have been aligned to the Standards for Training Packages.  It is anticipated that these qualifications will be submitted for endorsement in March 2015.

TLISC is also working with AMSA, Superyacht Australia and industry to develop STCW qualifications that address the training needs of the industry.  A steering committee meeting is proposed for late February 2015.

Lastly, I would like to thank all of our Maritime stakeholders who have provided invaluable support and advice throughout 2014. Your support and involvement in ensuring maritime training products are current and reflective of industry needs keeps the Maritime industry a vibrant, skilled sector.

All the best for the 2014 holiday season, I look forward to continuing our work in 2015.

Rail Training Package Update

Rail Update

Rail Training Package Update

During 2014 there been a considerable amount of work undertaken to prepare for the transition to the standards for Training Packages. In the TLI10 Training Package there are 25 qualifications, 53 skill sets and 236 unit of competency specific to Rail. Industry stakeholders have shown a high level of interest and engagement in the Rail transition projects, which will ensure all components are fit for purpose.

The following Steering Committee meetings will be held in early 2015 to continue the transition and review projects:

  • Rail Infrastructure 12 February 2015
  • Track Protection 13 February 2015
  • Train Driving 19 February 2015
  • Rail Control 4 March 2015
  • Rail Operations 17 March 2015

With so much activity occurring, there has been a lot of discussion with Rail stakeholders about the issues for consideration. For those in the Rail industry, it won’t be a surprise to hear that one of the most common issues I’ve been discussing with stakeholders is terminology. Those in the Rail sector love to use acronyms and jargon to the point where outsiders could be excused for thinking we’re talking a different language.

Terms like ‘RIM’, ‘RSW’ and ‘RTO’ might be understood by most rail workers as a ‘rail infrastructure manager’, a ‘rail safety worker’ or a ‘rail transport operator’, but to others, they could mean something entirely different. Then there are ‘TIMS’, which can refer to ‘Train Information Management System’, ‘Track Information Management System’ and ‘Timetable Information Management System’ depending on where you are working.

I found myself caught out by the terminology issue recently during a discussion with a Rail stakeholder about an RTO. It took me a few minutes to realise we weren’t talking about a Registered Training Organisation, but instead, a Rail Transport Operator. It was another reminder of the importance of being clear with the intended meaning of terminology.

As we work through the transition process, it is critical to ensure that the true meaning of the terms used to describe processes, systems and roles are clear to all users of the Training Package. Referencing Rail Safety and WHS/OHS legislative frameworks, and industry standards, will go a long way towards providing a guide to clear common terms.

But now I have another problem. What are we going to do about ‘detonators’?

If you have any questions or inquiries about the Standards for Training Packages, or would like to be involved in the rail consultation process, please contact Ron Horne: ron.horne@tlisc.org.au. You can also follow rail projects on the TLISC website.

To keep up-to-date with changes to rail sector qualifications, Skill Sets and units of competency, please make sure you have completed the ‘Register Your Interest’ at the bottom of the Rail Training Package webpage.

Finally, a big thank you to our rail stakeholders who have contributed immensely to the ongoing development of rail training products throughout 2014. I wish you and yours a safe and happy break and look forward to stepping back on board in 2015.

TLI Update

Transport & Logistics Training Package Update

TLISC continues to motor on, working with our industry stakeholders to transition to the TLI Transport & Logistics training package. What has been achieved in 2014 is immense and this is due to the dedication and commitment of our stakeholders to ensure the training package is fit for purpose and continues to meet industry needs. There has been a great deal of progress in improvements to the Driving Operations qualifications, High Risk Work licencing units, Chain of Responsibility units and the Dangerous Goods Transportation licencing units, but to name a few.

Work is currently underway in the following:

  • Working with Safe Work Australia (SWA) to review High Risk Work licencing units. This review has been proceeding well, with general agreement form SWA on the model and content that TLISC has presented.
  • Working with the Dangerous Goods (DG) licence Technical Advisory Group (TAG) on the unit “TLILIC3013A Preparation to transport dangerous goods by road”. The outcome of this meeting resulted in greater clarity of the job role, which enabled us to further refine the elements and performance criteria.  This group will now fine tune the skills and knowledge required to demonstrate competency.
  • The Driving Operations Steering committee is close to finalising the review of the 3 Driving Operations qualifications, which includes the development of 5 new skills sets and review of the 3 DG tanker units to incorporate ‘rollover awareness’.
  • The Driving Instruction Steering committee has commenced work on the review of the 3 Driving Instruction qualifications.
  • A steering committee was established and work has commenced on the review of the 5 Materiel and Deployment Logistics qualifications.
  • The W & L Steering committee met this month to finalise the process to review and transition the Warehousing and Logistics qualifications. This process has now been signed off by the committee and we will be preparing the qualifications and associated units of competency for endorsement.

With all of the projects that are currently underway, we’ve been receiving a significant amount feedback from stakeholders, which is important to ensure all views are considered.

So in 2015, the intensive work of aligning the TLI training package to the new standards will continue, along with the continuance of all the projects listed above. The following meetings will be organised for the first 3 months of 2015, to continue with the work from 2014. They include:

  • Driving Operations Steering committee
  • DG licence TAG to review the for the DG licence unit
  • Driving Instruction Steering committee
  • Materiel and Deployment Logistics Steering committee

We will also be establishing Steering Committees to oversee the transition of the qualifications and associated units of competency for:

  • International Freight Forwarding
  • Customs Broking
  • Bus and Coach Operations
  • Waste Driving
  • Traffic Operations
  • Furniture Removal

It has been a busy year, full of robust discussions and great achievements, in the ongoing development and improvement of training package standards. So a huge thank you to those of you in the Transport and Logistics industry; whether you are working in the industry, training the industry personnel or regulating the industry, thank you for caring enough to spend your time making a difference. Stay safe wherever you are over the festive season and we look forward to working with you all again in 2015.
