Purpose

This qualification is designed to recognise the skills and knowledge required to operate as
a Locomotive Engineer in one of three contexts: the haulage of freight trains; the haulage
of passenger trains, and the operation of multiple units and/or railcars all on network
routes.

The qualification provides a foundation of core skills and knowledge which build on the
units contained in the core of the National Certificate in Rail Transport (Level 2)
[Ref: 0958] and include core generic units, workplace health and safety and emergency
response units, communication units and rail industry specific units. There is a core
elective section to allow for flexibility.

The three strands each have a compulsory rail operations unit standard and two elective
sections. In each case Elective A provides options for candidates to demonstrate
competence using the signalling/track control systems operating in their geographical
area. Elective B provides for recognition of specialist and in depth skills and knowledge
relating to either freight or passenger or multiple unit/railcar operation.

Special Notes
Entry to this qualification is open.
