How is this course delivered?

This advanced, Cert IV rail training is delivered via Virtual Face-to-Face Online Classroom.

Enrolment also grants participants complimentary access to the Alium Works Pathway Program. Virtual learning delivery sessions will be delivered via TEAMS or ZOOM.

We offer 3 different delivery options, detailed below, each costing the same. (If you’re not sure which is right for you, contact our team here to discuss.)


OPTION 1: Fast track (10 Weeks Virtual Delivery*)

This fast-tracked virtual delivery program requires students to attend class on one full day (8+ hours) per week, over 10 weeks, via Teams or Zoom.

The initial 10-week period primarily focuses on theoretical learning and course content delivery. Following this initial 10-week phase, learners receive fortnightly 2-hour training and assessment support sessions conducted online with an accredited trainer and assessor—meeting course delivery and assessment requirements.

Ideal if you are an experienced rail safety worker seeking a formal qualification as part of your career development, and are looking for a fast-tracked option that enables you to complete this certification quickly.

OPTION 2: Standard (20 Weeks Virtual Delivery*) 

This standard virtual delivery program requires students to attend class for one full day (8+ hours) every fortnight, over 20 weeks, via Teams or Zoom.

The initial 20-week period primarily focuses on theoretical learning and course content delivery. Following this initial 20-week phase, learners receive fortnightly 2-hour training and assessment support sessions conducted online with an accredited trainer and assessor—meeting course delivery and assessment requirements.

The optimal choice if you want to learn more about compliance and gain a formal qualification, but you need an option that provides you/your company with minimal interference with your day-to-day work in order to complete the course.

OPTION 3: Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Route 1: Students with competencies in the TAE training package can map their evidence of competency and currency.

Route 2: Other students can complete the RPL Application Kit & demonstrate sufficient experience in industry to mitigate the requirement to participate in training. If approved by a trainer, the student may undertake an ‘assessment only’ pathway, where theory assessments are completed in the students’ own time and practical assessments are coordinated between the RTO and student.

Where RPL is sought, please note that RPL recognises prior learning, but it is not recognition of current competency.

    FAQs:

    At the Certificate IV level, students are encouraged to engage in independent research on top of the training days. Our course material is designed to foster inquiry-based learning, where students are expected to demonstrate their ability to conduct basic research. We’ve included resource links as part of the course delivery precisely for this purpose.

    Our delivery structure prioritises live demonstrations for two reasons. Firstly, it allows us to guide students to relevant resources, such as the ONRSR website, which is periodically updated. Secondly, live demonstrations offer interactive learning experiences that can enhance understanding and retention of the material. Rather than embedding these resources directly into the learning material, we believe it’s more effective to demonstrate where students can locate them.

    We do offer two options to pursue a recognition of prior learning. However, where RPL is sought, please note that RPL recognises prior learning but is not recognition of current competency.

    • RPL route 1: Students with competencies in the TAE training package can map their evidence of competency and currency.
    • RPL route 2: Other students can complete the RPL Application Kit & demonstrate sufficient experience in industry to mitigate the requirement to participate in training. If approved by a trainer, the student may undertake an ‘assessment only’ pathway, where theory assessments are completed in the students’ own time and practical assessments are coordinated between the RTO and student.
