CERT commenced operations in 2003 and its primary function is to provide responsive, flexible, innovative and cost effective training solution to the Australian Rail Industry.

Nationally CERT employs in excess of thirty-five trainers and assessors with either a safety or rail background, and in most cases both. Our business commenced and remains a national business with local teams consisting of highly skilled and experienced training Deliverer’s, Administrators and Managers who are able to transfer those skills and services to the international rail training market.

CERT has offices and trainers that are strategically placed nationally, and in all mainland states, to ensure compliant, responsive and cost effective service to national clients. CERT has the ability to mobilise both personnel and business processes nationally as required.

All CERT trainers have a minimum of ten year’s rail experience (most have in excess of twenty years) and two years training experience. Trainers have recent and ongoing experience in the delivery of rail infrastructure, rail operations and/or rail safeworking training and assessment.

All CERT Trainers hold the relevant and current Certificate IV Training and Assessing qualification, many hold Certificate III Rail Infrastructure and/or Certificate III in Rail Operations as well as other relevant vocational qualifications. All CERT Trainers are skilled and experienced in dealing with students with language, literacy and numeracy issues and are adept at tailoring learning to the needs of the student.

CERT Managers, Trainers, Compliance and Administrative staff have ongoing experience in the coordination of national and international training requirements. With continual interaction with major rail operators, skills councils and contracting companies, CERT has gained the experience and the ability to perform holistic training and assessment processes. We have the ability to ensure rail safety workers (RSW) are provided with training that has been customised and clustered to provide results that embed client’s culture whilst providing comprehensive but efficient service

CERT continually professionally develops its Trainers to ensure that their skills are diverse and current to ensure flexibility to the client and portability of skills across a range of industry qualifications.

All outcomes delivered by CERT comply with state and national rail safety legislation. The Australian Qualifications Framework provides a robust and transferable structure that will ensure compliance, consistency and contextualised learning outcomes delivered by CERT’s experienced rail training professionals with proven and ongoing results in all facets of rail vocational education.
