Southern Cross Rail Training conducts the off the job modules of the handsignalling courses in our air-conditioned premises at Chullora.

Handsignaller course participants will be required to pass theory and practical assessments to achieve competency. On successful completion of the off the job theory course, you will be issued with an on the job workbook which is used to track your progress as you complete practical training on the job under the supervision of an experienced Protection Officer level 3 or above qualified at least to the level being assessed.
Once the workbook is completed and you have demonstrated your ability to perform all aspects of the Hasndsignaller’s work correctly and independently the workbook will be validated by a qualified Certificate IV Trainer /Assessor from Southern Cross Rail Training to ensure that the process has been fully and correctly completed.
This final validation may require further questioning or demonstration of aspects of the Handsignaller’s work if considered necessary. A Statement of Attainment can then be issued by Southern Cross Rail Training for the relevant units of competence. The units of competence listed on the Statement of Attainment may then be used to gain a Certificate of Competence from by Onsite Track Easy website, http://railindustryworker.com.au/qualifications

If you seek certification as a handsignaller from Transport for NSW, the validated workbook will need to be taken to TfNSW for determination and the issue of a TfNSW Certificate of Competence. A TfNSW assessor will also conduct further questioning or demonstration of aspects of the role as considered necessary.
