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 training systems team, 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.Our team of training practitioners follow the systems approach to learning, which commences with an Analysis stage. The Analysis is aimed at examining each side of the operational area of the job or function so that the concepts and attitudes of the human elements of a system can be identified and appropriate training can be designed.

Training Systems

Training design is the process of creating a blueprint for the development of instruction.Our team use a systems approach to training design and development, which is aligned to the National VET Regulations (NVR) or as appropriate the Australian Quality Training Framework. This activity establishes the learning objectives, plans the steps to achieve those objectives, sequences and structures the steps to be taken including projects, lectures, videos, assignments, presentations, readings or other activities, and determines the evaluation process.

I have been impressed by Systematiq’s ability to provide not only PMO and technical support, but with strategic advice and highly effective pre-contract services including marketing and procurement strategy, and tender management.  The ability to mobilise a team and guide us through the ASDEFCON tender requirements meant that we were able to submit an extremely compelling RFI and subsequent RFT to the Commonwealth. We look forward to a continued working relationship.

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.
