CERT Training is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), formed in 2003 and operating nationally. We provide responsive, flexible, innovative and cost-effective training solutions to the Australian Rail Industry. All the outcomes we deliver comply with state and national rail safety legislation.

We employ more than thirty-five trainers and assessors nationally. Each team member has a safety, infrastructure and/or rail background. Through our training and assessment programs they proudly transfer their skills and services to the rail and infrastructure training markets.

CERT Training is accredited to deliver courses Australia-wide, including high-risk and specialised training. All of the outcomes we deliver comply with state and national legislation. We work to the Australian Qualifications Framework, ensuring compliance, consistency and contextualised learning outcomes. The results are proven and long-term, in all areas of rail vocational education.

All of our trainers have a current Certificate IV Training and Assessment and hold a relevant vocational qualification in infrastructure, operations, safe working or high-risk work. They’re experienced in dealing with students with language, literacy and numeracy issues, tailoring programs to their needs.

Our state-based offices and trainers deliver compliant, responsive and high-quality services to national clients. We can mobilise personnel and business processes wherever they’re needed.

These are the key values that we measure ourselves against every day:


Our trainers receive ongoing professional development and are part of a team who collaborate with industry associations and governing bodies to help steer industry policy and innovation. Testament to our trainers’ level of experience is their involvement with the Australian Industry Standards and other industry bodies, to develop and review training packages.


As a customer-focused organisation, we’re committed to understanding client needs. We’re responsive and flexible in our approach, regularly updating our practices and partnering with

customers to meet and exceed expectations. We are always learning and growing and we don’t settle for existing practices. We challenge ideas of what is possible to make decisions which place our customers’ needs first and enable us to maintain our position as the leading industry training company.


CERT Training continually strives to maintain leadership in rail training, with the systems, methods and approaches that improve the student learning and assessment experiences. Utilising innovation and technological advances, including our state-of-the-art Student and Learning Management System, we generate solutions for our customers which raise the bar and add valuable services to the rail industry.


We’re committed to delivering high-value and high-quality client outcomes which are underpinned by trust. We always choose to act with honesty, transparency and respect as we do what is best for our customers, our company and the industries we serve. We rigorously monitor our systems to ensure ongoing compliance and adherence to our responsibilities as an RTO and use our innovation, experience and integrity to create efficiencies and cost-effective solutions.

High quality: As a long-standing business in the rail industry, we pride ourselves on the high-quality programs we deliver, with all CERT Training programs and processes benchmarked to the highest national standards. We offer tailored, bundled and packaged training solutions to streamline qualifications and provide students with relevant and accelerated employment pathways.

Our history

In 2003 CERT Training was formed in Western Australia, receiving accreditation through the Training Accreditation Council (TAC) and approval to deliver nationally accredited training in all states.

CERT Training then expanded into New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Northern Territory and South Australia. CERT Training is a wholly owned subsidiary of Engenco Limited. In 2010 CERT’s parent company was restructured and rebranded as Engenco Ltd, an ASX-listed company. By this time CERT Training was delivering rail training, assessment, and consultancy services nationally.

CERT Training has continued to grow and expand, adding additional training facilities, training providers and services within metro, regional and remote locations to meet client needs.

In 2020 we developed a strategic partnership with Momentum Rail Workforce Solutions to customise a total end-to-end workforce management solution. This includes up-skilling and re-skilling, formal education programs, and government funded employment and career development pathways and diversity programs.
