TICRail regularly runs SARC induction courses across Australia. This is a single day, classroom-based course. Everyone in the rail industry has had to complete this course – it lays the foundations for every job in the industry.  SARC is very similar to a white card in construction. 

A Rail Industry Workers Card (RIW Card) is an identification tool, that keeps record of all your rail industry qualifications to ensure your knowledge and skills are up to date. You can learn more about the RIW Card on their website.
