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.
Course Pre-work for recertifications
Participants who hold or have held within the last 6 months a RMS Blue Card Licence will be sent an Traffic Controller Logbook/Third Party Report prior to the training day. The Logbook/Third Party Report forms an important part of your assessment portfolio and will need to be completed using your experiences in your work place before the training day and presented to the Trainer/Assessor for assessment.
Delivery and Assessment Method
Training Day – All participants to attend pre-determined training day. Recertification participants should have the completed Traffic Controller Logbook/Third Party Report in their possession for assessment. 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
All participants will need to directly observed in their workplace carrying out appropriate traffic control duties. Participants who have never held a Traffic Control qualification or licence will 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 3 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.
