HRD Integrated Services offers accredited and non-accredited training options for organisations and personnel involved in rail signals construction and maintenance and rail infrastructure construction, installation and maintenance.
Training and assessment for rail signalling and rail infrastructure must be supported by an employer involved in the rail signals or rail infrastructure sectors as access to worksite equipment is essential to training and assessment.
Nationally recognised training: rail signalling
Accredited training options are available for gaining a rail signalling qualification or Statement of Attainment for a unit of competency or for a cluster of units.
Certificate IV in Electrical–Rail Signalling
The national Certificate IV in Electrical–Rail Signalling is the essential qualification for working in a rail signalling maintenance role. New entrants to the rail signalling sector may be apprentice electricians specialising in rail signals or qualified electricians undertaking rail signalling specialisation training.
Rail Signalling Control and Wiring Concepts
(Install and Wire Rail Signalling Equipment – the rail signalling ‘Wiring Units’)
Accredited training and/or assessment is available in the rail signalling core units that focus on installing and wiring rail signal equipment. The Wiring Units are essential core to the Certificate IV in Electrical–Rail Signalling.
Mechanical rail signalling
Employees working in rail construction can access assessment of skills in installation, testing and decommissioning of mechanical signalling equipment. You can choose from the full qualification or selected units of competency.
Successful demonstration of competency leads to a nationally recognised Certificate III in Mechanical Rail Signalling or a Statement of Attainment for individual units of competency.
High voltage training
HRD Integrated Services is authorised by V/Line to provide high voltage training to its rail signalling staff.
Nationally recognised training is offered for High Voltage Authorised Signals Tester and HV Signals Operator. These courses are aligned to the unit of competency Operate Local HV Switchgear.
A non-accredited course is available for rail signal technicians requiring the HVSR Signals Recipient accreditation.
Introduction to Rail Signalling
HRD’s Introduction to Rail Signalling course provides an essential background and underlying theory foundation for rail employees working in a construction role who require an understanding of rail signal equipment wiring and installation.
The Introduction to Rail Signalling course is modelled on the rail signalling ‘Wiring’ units of competency from the Certificate IV Electrical–Rail Signalling, but without the level of detail and comprehensive assessment required for the accredited course.
