Face to Face Courses

Face to face courses will be delivered by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) for RISSB. Courses may be set by RISSB and open to enrolments from across industry OR specific arrangements can be made with a rail organisation if you have sufficient numbers wanting to do the course.

Face to face courses will generally be held at the RTO and there will be both theory and practical assessments undertaken by the RTO.

RISSB encourages rail organisations to contact training@rissb.com.au to discuss course delivery options and how they can be customised to a particular rail organisation. There are discounts for RISSB members and for bulk bookings.
