MicroLok II Quick course info

Pre-requisites

This course has pre-requisite requirements. It assumes that learners have knowledge and skills in a range of maintenance activities.

To be entitled to receive a Statement of Attainment for UEENEEN114A, learners must be able to demonstrate they meet UEE41211 qualification pre-requisite requirements.

Refer to the HRD UEE41211 Unit pre-requisite chart for details.

Assessment

Final assessment requires demonstration of competence on two occasions either:

  • on the same equipment used in the workplace (a supporting assignment may also be required) OR
  • using two different equipment types.

RPL

RPL is available, but is not recommended.

Award

A HRD Certificate of Completion is issued to successful learners. Learners may be entitled to a Statement of Attainment for UEENEEN114A on successful demonstration of competence.

Duration

Training typically occurs over 5 days, including workplace practical assessment. Assignment preparation is generally in the learner's own time.

Cost

Because learners must already be employed in a rail signalling context, it's expected that your employer will meet all course costs.

Microlok/MicroTrax/GCP training

HRD MicroLok II, MicroTrax and/or GCP training is for signal maintainers wishing to upgrade their skills in computer-based interlocking and/or track circuit systems.

Training is available as an integrated program or as stand-alone courses.

MicroLok II

MicroLok II training builds competence in the installation and maintenance of a MicroLok II control system.

The MicroLok II interlocking control is a multi-purpose control and monitoring system for railway wayside interlocking equipment. Basic applications include:

  • control and monitoring of trackside signal equipment such as; point/switch machines, signals, train protection and level crossing, etc
  • coded track circuit systems
  • monitoring of standard track circuits and axle counters for track occupancy
  • cab signal carrier/code generation
  • through-the-rails communications to adjacent wayside control systems.

The modular design of the units enables a rail operator to custom design the system to meet their specific requirements.

Course pre-requisites

The course assumes participants have knowledge of and maintenance experience in (as a minimum):

  • rail signalling power supplies and control cables (installation, repair and testing)
  • track circuits
  • signals and train protection systems
  • point mechanisms
  • level crossing protection systems.

Competence

HRD MicroLok II training contributes to meeting the underpinning knowledge requirements of the unit of competency UEENEEN114A Maintain computer based interlocking systems.

Course objectives

Upon completion of the HRD MicroLok II course participants will be able to:

  • explain the function and application of MicroLok II architecture
  • read and interpret computer based interlocking circuit plans
  • install new computer based interlocking components and system modules according to manufacturer and company standards
  • set to work /maintain computer based Interlocking equipment operation according to manufacturer and company standards
  • confirm normal function and operating parameters
  • use diagnostic procedures to find and repair computer based interlocking equipment failures
  • perform unit replacement of defective computer based interlocking components
  • use test equipment to confirm computer based interlocking equipment correct operation
  • record test results to re-certify computer based interlocking modules
  • complete relevant installation and maintenance records.

Assessment

Assessment includes practical exercises, assignments, written tests and workplace practical assessments.

A Statement of Attainment for UEENEEN114A may be awarded if the candidate successfully demonstrates all competency requirements.

MicroTrax

The Micro-Trax coded track circuit is a solid-state, microprocessor-based track and line circuit system designed to work in non-electified territory.

MicroTrax combines track circuit management, train detection and line wire circuitry functions wit communications carried through rails. It also allows the user to control signals, drive relay outputs and receive inputs from external sources. Vital integrity is maintained through detection of broken rails and failed insulated rail joints.

Course pre-requisites

The course assumes participants have knowledge of and maintenance experience in (as a minimum):

  • rail signalling power supplies and control cables (installation, repair and testing)
  • track circuits

Competence

HRD MicroTrax training contributes to meeting the underpinning knowledge requirements of the unit of competency UEENEEN109A Install and maintain train detection equipment.

Course objectives

Upon completion of the HRD MicroTrax course participants will be able to:

  • identify components
  • install, set-up and test a MicroTrax system to ensure that technical specifications are met
  • maintain the system according to specifications
  • diagnose system failures.

Assessment

Assessment includes practical exercises, assignments, written tests and workplace practical assessments.

A Statement of Attainment for UEENEEN109A may be awarded if the candidate successfully demonstrates all competency requirements.

GCP (Grade Crossing Predictor) theory training

The GCP 3000/4000 is a microprocessor-controlled system used to continually monitor approaches to railrodd grade crossings.

GCP works in either PREDICTOR mode or MOTION SENSOR mode.

In predictor mode the GCP:

  • detects approaching trains
  • computes train speed and distance
  • activates crossing protection equipment at a programmed time prior to train arrival at the crossing.

In motion sensor mode the GCP:

  • detects an approaching train when the train speed exceeds 3.21 kph
  • activates crossing protection on train detection.

Course pre-requisites

It's preferred that course participants (ideally) have knowledge of and maintenance experience in:

  • rail signalling power supplies and control cables (installation, repair and testing)
  • track circuits
  • signals and train protection systems
  • point mechanisms
  • level crossing protection systems.

Competence

HRD GCP theory training contributes to meeting the underpinning knowledge requirements of the unit of competency UEENEEN109A Install and maintain train detection equipment.

Course objectives

Through the HRD GCP 3000/4000 course, participants receive theory training covering:

  • identifying components
  • installing, setting-up and testing a GCP system to ensure that technical specifications are met
  • maintaining the system according to specifications
  • diagnosing system failures.

Assessment

Assessment includes practical exercises, assignments, written tests and workplace practical assessments.

A Statement of Attainment for UEENEEN109A may be awarded if the candidate successfully demonstrates all competency requirements.
