Sydney Metro Contractors

Follow the steps below to register your workers on Sydney Metro projects.

Step 1 > Register in Rail Safety Worker (RSW) program

To work on Sydney Metro projects, workers must hold a site access control card as mandated by the project entry requirement. If advised by the site representative to do so, please ensure you have a Rail Industry Worker (RIW) card or Rail Safety Worker (RSW) card with the correct Sydney Metro role.

Visit for information about the program and how to register.

Step 2 > Complete Workforce Development Survey

Workers on the Sydney Metro project must complete the workforce development survey.

Once workers have completed the survey, ask them to save and send you the Certificate of Completion. This will be required in Step 4.

This survey can be completed at the same time as or prior to the SMIC or SMOT process, Step 3 below.

Step 3 > SMIC or SMOT

Sydney Metro Industry Curriculum (SMIC)

Workers on a Sydney Metro project with a Sydney Metro Industry Curriculum (SMIC)-aligned role must complete courses with the relevant Registered Training Organisation (RTO). These workers will not be permitted to access site until the relevant training has been completed.

For further information on Sydney Metro Industry Curriculum training, please contact the site representative for the project you will be working on.

At the successful completion of training, upload the Results Sheet to the worker’s site access control profile as evidence of completion.

Please note: workers will need a Unique Student Identifier to book training. Allow at least seven days prior to starting work for role competencies to be validated.

Sydney Metro Orientation Training (SMOT)

RSW cardholders who hold the correct Units of Competency (UoC) or do not have to participate in SMIC must complete Sydney Metro Orientation Training (SMOT) prior to working at Sydney Metro sites. This training can be arranged directly with the site representative.

If administrating your own profile, you may need to obtain a copy of your attendance sheet to upload during your role application in Step 2.

Allow at least seven days prior to starting work for role competencies to be validated.

Statements of Attendance

A Statement of Attendance can be uploaded to a profile for a worker who has successfully completed a SMIC course via an RTO.
