RIIWHS205D Traffic Controller
This course provides training for staff who are required to control traffic with a stop/slow bat. This course does not qualify a participant to set up or work with traffic control plans.
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.
Participants will be required to complete a booking form prior to training. On this form participants can indicate whether or not 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 practical practice sessions.
Your trainer/assessor will be assessing you throughout the day and 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 course work for New Entrants
The assessor needs to gather evidence from two separate workplace experiences. All participants will need to be directly observed in their workplace on at least one occasion undertaking appropriate traffic control activities. Our preferred assessment practice is to observe you in your workplace on two occasions if it is practicable to do so, alternatively you can be given a Traffic Controller Logbook/Third Party Report at the training event. The Logbook/Third Party Report will need to be completed in the workplace. You will have 2 months to gather evidence from your relevant experiences in the workplace. This evidence will then form part of your ‘portfolio of evidence’. This portfolio will then be the basis on which the assessor will make a summative assessment of your competence.
