Course Outline
Prerequisites Participants of this course must be employed in the RailCorp Emergency Train Recovery Unit and have training in previous RailCorp Train Set types.

Target audience

This course is designed for personnel of the RailCorp Emergency Train Recovery Unit who may be directly involved with the recovery of Waratah (A-Set) Trains.

Nominal duration

2 Hours (including assessment)

Purpose

The purpose of this course is to enable RailCorp Emergency Recovery Unit Personnel to work safely around and perform recovery operations of Waratah (A-Set) Trains.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, participants will have learned how to: Work Safely on and around Waratah Trains Explain Waratah recovery requirements

Assessment strategy

To enable a manageable assessment strategy, a formative assessment will be aimed at the training topics. Learning Outcomes within the Training Environment will be deemed to be achieved after the successful completion of Course Assessment. The type of assessment will be an oral assessment in which participants will be asked to locate equipment and demonstrate or explain procedures. The oral assessment will be conducted and the end of the last session and will be a consolidated assessment of all Learning Outcomes.

Relationship to competency standards

See Delivery and Assessment Strategy.
