Training and Inductions

Before you enter the rail corridor there are inductions you must complete.

The minimum requirement is:

You may be required to complete the following inductions depending on the location of your permitted activity:

  • Tunnel Operations - Infrastructure (if working in a tunnel)
  • Electrification Awareness Intermediate (if working in electrified areas)

You may be approached on site and must be able to show proof of inductions. We suggest that you keep a copy on your device to show upon request.
