Railway Verbal Communication Exercise (rVce)
|Training||Test User Occupational Ability (TUO-A) formerly known as Level A|
|Assessor Time||Approx. 45 minutes (Timed)|
This exercise is designed to assess a candidate's ability to communicate work-related information clearly and accurately in spoken form.
The rVce has been designed specifically for front-line rail safety-critical personnel, including train drivers. This test assesses an applicant's ability to verbally communicate safety-critical information. The candidate listens to a CD about a rail incident, and makes notes. The candidate then gives a verbal summary of the incident to an Incident Officer (assessor) together with what needs to be undertaken immediately.
This exercise compliments the Railway Written Communication Exercise (rWce). Both exercises include the same audio of the safety incident. In the rVce the candidate is assessed on his/her verbal communication; in the rWce the candidate is assessed on his/her written communication. In the rVce, candidates are assessed on the quality and accuracy of their verbal communication.
