Training to be a train driver
Aurizon is making a significant investment in building the capability of train crew to ensure we are well positioned to deliver on increasing customer demand for new and existing contracts.
Based at our Pring Depot in Bowen North Queensland, Tanya Sigmund recently became a qualified Locomotive Driver after undertaking Aurizon’s 21-week training course.
During the training, Tanya undertook four modules covering key aspects of railway operations including shunting, fatigue management strategies, responding to trackside signals and trackside signs, and emergency response processes.
When asked about her goals for the future, Tanya said she is always open to opportunities.
“Aurizon is very encouraging of career advancement, and that’s one of the reasons this job appealed to me.
“For now, though I am more than happy focusing on learning as much as I can and to become the best driver that I can be.”
Aurizon is currently seeking expressions of interest for people interested in training to become a locomotive driver. For more information, follow this link.
