How does this course relate to the RIW Card?

The Rail Industry Worker (RIW) Card is issued to rail workers who hold a nominated list of competencies, which vary based on the rail network operator. This course (Safely Access the Rail Corridor) is a mandatory requirement for workers wishing to obtain a RIW Card for several rail network providers. We always recommend that when planning your proposed training, you speak to your employer about their current training requirements.
