Basic Track Awareness

Initial and refresher




The Basic Track Awareness course will enable you to progress up the competency ladder to progress your skills, knowledge, and capability.

This allows a person to work in the track environment in both traffic hours, engineering hours, in depots or possessions with train movements and/or live traction current, whilst under protection.

Anyone intending to access track during traffic hours, in an area where there are train movements, or an area with live traction current must have this certification as a minimum.
