This competency allows individuals, who do not work as part of a group, to carry out tasks such as; patrolling, inspecting and examining (PIE). It also allows individuals to put protection in place when working on work sites or under line blockage situations. For an initial IWA there is a 9-15 month on-track assessment, the individual will then be required to take part in a recertification course every 2 years to ensure you are retrained and competent.
On successful completion of the course candidates will be able to correctly interpret the relevant parts of the Rule Book, the Railway Group Standards. They will be able to demonstrate their understanding and ability to set up and maintain a safe system of work while alone “On or Near the Line”.
Upon successful completion of this course, your new competency will be uploaded to Sentinel by one of our administrators. Sentinel smart cards are ordered directly from Sentinel at www.railsentinel.co.uk (at your own cost).
