|UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS|
|1. An individual wishing to be assessed against this standard may apply to an assessment agency, assessor or provided institution that has been accredited by the relevant ETQA.
2. A learner specialising in Rail Operations through this elective standard will be assessed by an assessor who has been certified as competent against the National Certificate in Rail Operations NQF level 5, which must include this standard.
3. Any assessor and training provider must ensure that the relevant company specific procedures/rules are used as reference material when designing courseware, assessment or when selecting pre-designed assessments.
4. Anyone assessing a learner against this standard must be registered as an assessor with the relevant TRANSPORT SETA - ETQA.
5. Any institution offering learning that will enable achievement of this standard must be registered and accredited as a provider at SAQA.
6. Moderation of assessment will be done by the relevant ETQA as prescribed.
|UNIT STANDARD ESSENTIAL EMBEDDED KNOWLEDGE|
|Learners can understand and explain the following in a rail environment:
1. Principles and theory related to the utilisation of the SPRINT system for event reporting
2. Communication process that is required for a specific situation
3. Relevant elements of POSMOR
4. Relevant elements of the OHS Act, Act 85 of 1993
5. Application of computer software programmes
6. Safety rules and regulations, procedures related to the compilation of trains
|Critical Cross-field Outcomes (CCFO):|

Learners have acquired the generic ability to solve problems by reacting to abnormalities, e.g. rearrangements of trains, reservations of trucks and locomotive planning, etc.
|UNIT STANDARD CCFO WORKING|
Learners have acquired the generic ability to work as a team for the safe and timeous reporting of truck/locomotive/train movements under normal and abnormal circumstances.
|UNIT STANDARD CCFO ORGANISING|
|Self-organisation and self-management
Learners have acquired the generic ability to manage and organise themselves by: arranging the reporting function of trucks/locomotives/trains adhering to and complying with company-specific train working rules/procedures under normal and abnormal circumstances.
|UNIT STANDARD CCFO COLLECTING|
Learners have acquired the generic ability to critically analyse, evaluate and verify information to record truck, locomotive and train movement on SPRINT.

|UNIT STANDARD NOTES|
|This unit standard has been replaced by unit standard 264397, which is "Monitor railway stock and related equipments", Level 4, 10 credits.
When conducting assessment, assessors must ensure that they are familiar with the full text of the unit standards being assessed.
They must ensure that assessment covers the specific outcomes, critical cross-field outcomes and essential embedded knowledge.
Each environment/situation will be different, it will be necessary to develop assessment activities and tools, which are appropriate to the context in which the assessment will take place.
METHOD OF ASSESSMENT
During formal training at the provider:
1. Written tests
2. Case studies.
During on the job training:
1. Oral test
3. Case studies.
Integrated final on the job assessment:
2. Oral tests
3. Case studies
In the Rail Operations environment it will be more effective to assess a number of unit standards together and the assessor must evaluate each assessment request to determine the grouping of the standards for assessment.
The assessment must integrate a number of different methods. (Example: When equipment, communication and system are normal the integrated assessment will be based on normal procedures. If any abnormality occur during the assessment period, the normal procedures and operation must be done on a pre-production program. This will give the assessor reliable and valid proof of competence and evidence of required attitudes and skills.
The integrated assessment must take place in the environment where the learner will work independently on completion of final assessment.
Valid, reliable and authentic evidence (presented as a portfolio of evidence) from past achievements and experience may serve to supplement the assessment of applied competence. The portfolio should include, inter alia:
1. Written statements from persons (e.g. current and/or previous employer, colleague, peer, manager, external customers) confirming competence of the learner.
2. Relevant certificates or awards.
3. Previous assessment records.
4. Journal (Logbook).
In addition, the following values should be demonstrated:
SIMS : Spoornet Incident Management System
ETA/ETD: Estimated time of arrival - estimated time of departure
MANAGEMENT: Integrates with SPRINT and INTAC by providing on line credit checks and automatic billing on movement and monitoring and doing inquiries on consignment status
STATUS : Availability, workshop, and maintenance program for locomotives/trucks
