Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to install and maintain pole mounted switches and transformers in accordance with safeworking and regulatory requirements, and workplace procedures.

It includes planning installation and maintenance, preparing worksite, installing switches and transformers in accordance with workplace specifications, maintaining switches and transformers, and completing work.

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, rail industry standards and/or guidelines.

People working on energised overhead or underground systems or electrical equipment must have undertaken training and, where appropriate, hold the relevant licence, permit or certificate and be recognised as competent to carry out the work involved.

Work is performed under minimal supervision, generally within a team environment. It involves the application of routine operational principles and procedures when installing and maintaining pole mounted switches and transformers, as part of workplace 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.
