Transgrid Training Group provide company specific and nationally recognised (RTO) training for external partners and subcontractors.

All national units of competence (non-Transgrid specific training) must be undertaken with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) that has the specific unit of competency in their scope of registration.

What Training Do I Need?

To determine training needs for projects or ‘works’ please refer to the skills matrix on the specific project page or confirm with the Transgrid representative.

How do I choose the right PSSR or Environmental Worker Roles?

The identification of the appropriate PSSR and environment authorisation and worker role requirements is typically identified during the project establishment phase. Please discuss with the Transgrid Project Manager, Site Manager or owner of ‘the works’ to clarify the requirements.

Typically PSSR is requested in the following groupings. Click to review a PDF of this information.

 

How do I apply for high level PSSR Worker Roles?

Transgrid has several PSSR worker roles that are considered to be of a higher competency level and require the worker to provide additional evidence to support their application for these roles. The PSSR worker roles are:

When you select these work roles, you will first need to complete a ‘Suitability Form’, linked above. This form requires the worker’s employer and the Principal Contractor/Leading Contractor to answer questions to determine the suitability of the worker for the role. This is mandatory and must be completed before the worker may proceed to training

How do I pay for training?

When booking a public course you will be direct through the system checkout and you can pay by:

  1. Credit card
  2. PayPal
  3. Purchase Order (Please contact our partner Pegasus to organise)

NB: All transactions under $200 will incur a $10 transaction fee. Transactions over $400 will incur a $20 transaction fee.

When booking a private or site training session Transgrid will invoice directly for the training as per agreed quote.

How do I invite a worker to access their information and training?

Workers are emailed their training at the end of the booking process in the Transgrid WSAT. If this email is deleted or lost, you as the company administrator can invite/reinvite them to this training.

Please click here for a video guide about how to do this, and what the worker will have access to.
