Registered Training Organisations

Rail Industry Worker Courses & Training

Registered Training Organisations (RTO) are the providers and assessors of rail based training.

Nationally Recognised RTOs

Rail workers seeking to develop skills in specific rail-related tasks can obtain their national units of competence from training providers approved by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). These rail training courses will provide the certification rail industry workers need to successfully operate in their roles.

To find a nationally approved training provider, visit training.gov.au

Network Operator Approved RTOs

Network Operators in various states require certain competencies to be obtained from specific training providers. The list of Network Operator Approved RTOs and the relevant courses can be found below.

Direct Upload Capability

Some approved Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) are taking advantage of the direct upload capability in the RIW System. This enables the training provider to upload training certificates directly into the system, which saves time and means less time off tools for the rail industry worker. The list of RTOs using the direct upload capability can be found below. There are several available in Melbourne and elsewhere in Victoria, as well as other states and capital cities throughout Australia.
