Description

Traffic Controller

This qualification is for employees who manage traffic through and/or past a roadwork site, directing traffic with a stop/slow down bat or similar control device.

Traffic Management Implementer

This qualification is for employees who are required to setup Traffic Control Guidance Schemes (TCGSs) also known as Traffic Control Plans (TCPs) in accordance with approved Traffic Management Plans.

Enrolment

Participants will be required to complete an enrolment form online prior to training. On this form participants can indicate whether they require further assistance due to any LLN issues. This is most important so that the trainer/assessor can implement any processes prior to the day’s training.

Delivery and Assessment Method

Training Day – All participants to attend pre-determined training day. After the course induction the trainer/assessor will facilitate the participants through both theory and simulated practical sessions.

Your trainer/assessor will be assessing you throughout the day and this will form part of what we call a ‘portfolio of evidence’. This portfolio will then be the basis on which the assessor will make a summative assessment of your competence.

Post training course requirements

The assessor needs to gather evidence from three separate workplace experiences. All participants will need to be directly observed at a workplace on at least three occasions undertaking appropriate traffic control activities.  This evidence will form part of the ‘portfolio of evidence’ which will be the basis on which the assessor will make a summative assessment of your competence.

All participants must complete the pre-course learning located on our website (found under “Student Resources”) prior to attendance.

You will be asked to answer questions on this throughout the duration of the course.

It is the Learners’ responsibility to disclose and make TMT aware of any information pertaining to their individual learning requirements including LLN levels so as reasonable adjustments can be made.
