February 2019

Leading independent rail solutions companies, Sterling Infrastructure and ActivateRail are delighted to announce their new partnership with Go-Train Industry – a nationally-endorsed Registered Training Organisation offering a broad range of rail industry training services.

The investment complements Sterling and ActivateRail’s existing service offering of infrastructure services including engineering, civil construction, asset management, rail interface, project management and safe working solutions.

Go-Train – led by Managing Director Phillip Long, has delivered a multitude of courses to the rail sector encompassing over 15,000 students throughout Queensland and New South Wales over the past 6 years. Clients include Aurizon, Transport for NSW, ARTC and Queensland Rail.

“Go-Train welcomes those entering the rail industry, as well as those looking to advance their careers and further develop existing skills. An emphasis on removing barriers for disadvantaged and rural individuals allows Go-Train to provide training to all walks of life. Our comprehensive training model is delivered in a format that is easily accessible, flexible and user friendly, providing a platform for success,” Long said.

Director and Chair Susie Pascoe said Go-Train fulfilled a strategic goal to add greater value to Australia’s rail operators.

“The legislative requirements for ongoing competency-based training in our industry are ever increasing – in line with significant state and federal government investment in rail infrastructure,” Susie said.

“Our investment in Go-Train and aspirations for its expansion will enable us to help meet the increasing industry demand for qualified rail workers to ensure the safe and efficient operation of our railways,” she added.

“We are excited to work alongside Go-Train’s Managing Director Phillip Long, who brings with him over 30 years’ experience in the rail industry and a passion for training. Our shared values, coupled with a vision to supply end-to-end services will ensure our group will impart students, employees and clients with expert services, advice and staff at a calibre second to none”.
