The rail industry has been one of Queensland's largest employers for over 150 years with Queensland Rail employing a number of new apprentices and trainees each year across a range of trades. TAFE Queensland offers courses in rail traction, distribution overhead, and transmission overhead. Our rail courses are perfect for new and existing workers, as well as those looking to gain training certification in the rail industry.

In our rail courses you can learn how to safely install, maintain, and inspect overhead poles, structures, conductors, cables, and rail traction wiring systems. Or you can get your licence to operate a boom-type elevating work platform and learn how to safely perform dogging.
