Network Changes 2023/2024:
With the migration of control systems from Mayfield to Orange Control Centre, UGLRL will be introducing the WOTA platform replacing ETW as the electronic application for Work on track authorities in 2024.
WOTA will replace both ETW and ETW V in 2024.
ETW and ETW V eLearning modules as found below must be assigned to you by your RIW manager.
To facilitate the changes in technology UGLRL has completed amendments to Network Rules and Network Procedures and with the technology improvements UGLRL is mandating the inclusion of ‘TLIK2010 - Use info technology devices in the workplace’ for all Protection Officer roles to use the application and to ensure role validity.
Please note TLIK2010 is not required for ETW/ETW V.
UGLRL 2023 Network Rules and Network Procedure amendments have taken effect as of the 27th August 2023.
Training and assessment material for both the UGLRL 2023 Network Rule and Network procedure amendments and WOTA will be available from the below approved Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).
- The Instruction Company
- Yakka Training
UGLRL will not be providing Training or Assessment directly to external protection officers.
Protection Officers that do not have current UGLRL safeworking roles within RIW have been deactivated from the control systems and be unable to obtain work on track methods/authorities until the role is validated within RIW and a request has been received for activation from an authorised representative of your primary employer.
Please note this request must come from your primary employer any other requests will be rejected.
Further information will be distributed on RIW Industry News, and via Vircarda push notifications.
