RIIGOV401D Apply, monitor and report on compliance systems
RIICWD503D Prepare work zone traffic management plan
This qualification will enable participants to create a traffic management plan as well as design, select and modify Traffic Control Plans (TCPs), also known as Traffic Control Guidance Schemes (TCGSs) and conduct inspections.
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 Methods
Training Day 1 – Participants to attend a pre-arranged training course that consists of a theory component and group activities.
Training Day 2 – Theory component continues and the process of developing of a full TMP will begin. This will be followed by a written theory assessments.
Training Day 3 – Theory component and assessments will be completed. You will also complete the development of the first TMP. At the end of the third day you will be fully briefed on the TMP that you will have to complete in your own time post course.
Post course work – Participants will be required to complete a second TMP in their own time using either their own resources or those that will be provided.
The assessor will review the portfolio of evidence for each participant and will make a summative assessment.
