Rail Training Support


Modern, complex engineering and infrastructure programs require a highly trained workforce to design, manage and maintain for the life of a service. Core skills training needs must be identified and designed to purpose-fit these programs

Through our separate company Learning Systems Analysis, we apply systematic procedures to the definition of training and training support requirements for major and minor capital projects. We use modern theories and principles of instructional design.

We employ industry best-practice to instructional design and the investigation of new and emerging training technologies. Virtual and constructive simulations are an important focus of our approach, as well as employing proprietary training system modelling tools.

Training Analysis

Training is the acquisition of skills, concepts or attitudes that result in improved performance within the job environment.

Training Design 
and Development

Training design is the process of creating a blueprint for the development of instruction.

Training 
Evaluation

What Our Clients Say

We create certainty, remove obstacles and increase capabilities to get our clients moving forward.

I engaged the services of Systematiq to assist me with addressing our requirements for RAM engineering on the new rolling stock project. Systematiq was able to provide me with access to RAM practitioners at short notice that enabled ensured I met the project deadlines for the new rolling stock project reviews.

Through the engagement, I found the Systematiq staff to be helpful and integrated easily into our existing project team. Their responsiveness ensured I didn’t suffer any schedule delay due to the RAM requirements.

Systematiq were engaged to support my team with the compilation of the TfNSW Bus Procurement Panel, based upon their previous assistance to our response to the WA PTA Bus Tender.
The team were a real pleasure to deal with and integrated well into our existing team. They were able to come up to speed quickly with the task at hand and helped to direct our team so that we were able to make the extremely tight deadline.
I was also impressed with the additional support they provided us on our pricing response and TfNSW requirement for engineering management that was a massive hurdle and I was overcome with the Systematiq team’s ability to get the job done. We would highly recommend engaging Systematiq for any tender bids.

Thanks to the Systematiq team for your efforts in supporting Team Sentinel’s Land 400 bid.I was really impressed by how quickly you all settled into the team and came up to speed with what needed to be done. The technical knowledge of your team combined with your ability to generate a bid was great. It is a rare skill to cover both the technical and marketing components of producing a bid.
