These changes will impact contractors currently holding the roles of Protection Officer Level 1 (PO1), Protection Officer Level 2 – TOA (PO2 – TOA) or Protection Officer Level 2 – TWA (PO2 – TWA). Queensland Rail contractors holding any of these roles will need to attend upskilling training delivered by one our training providers, firstly though contractors will need to ensure they are current in the RIW System for the role with all monitoring requirements fulfilled. Queensland Rail training providers will be updated on the changes in the coming weeks and then be ready to deliver these changes to contractors. It is important to note that if the role is not current and in the RIW System contractors will not be able to attend the training and therefore not fulfill the role of the new Protection Officer role for Queensland Rail.
