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 operate and monitor a heritage motive power unit in accordance with relevant workplace procedures, rail regulations and codes of practice.

It includes operating the controls of a heritage motive power unit, monitoring its performance and maintaining its operational condition during a journey. It also includes working collaboratively with other train crew and relevant personnel.

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 minimal supervision, generally within a team environment. It involves the application of routine operational principles and procedures when maintaining the safety and operation of a heritage motive power unit across a variety of operational contexts in the Australian heritage rail system.

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