Prepare for train departure

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: December 2018


This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to prepare for train departure in accordance with workplace procedures and the requirements of relevant safeworking regulations and codes of practice.

It includes checking rolling stock, equipment and related documentation; checking for planned variations from normal routines; and completing documentation as required. Activities are undertaken for both freight and passenger trains.

For passenger trains, it also includes checking passenger facilities and assessing stock levels as required in accordance with workplace requirements.

People achieving competence in this unit will need to fulfil the applicable state/territory legislated rail safety requirements and to comply with relevant codes of practice and/or guidelines.

Work is performed under some supervision, generally within a team environment. It involves the application of routine operational principles and procedures when preparing train for departure, as part of work activities across a variety of operational contexts within the Australian rail system.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)
