  • Placing signs and barriers
  • To direct vehicle flow, use a stop/slow bat
  • Controlling pedestrian and vehicular traffic
  • Traffic monitoring and conditions adjustment
  • Use clear hand signals to direct motorists
  • Using communication devices
  • Signs and devices removed
  • Clean up the site

Implementing work instructions and traffic plans is the first step. Supervisors who have successfully completed the RIIWHS302D course will create the plans before work begins.

You will need to be able to place signs and barriers during the assessment. Also, you will need to demonstrate your ability to use the stop/slow bat or hand signals to direct pedestrian and vehicle flows. To complete the assessment, instructors simulate real environments.

Knowledge-based assessment is about your understanding of different requirements. It is important that you are familiar with all safety legislation. You also need to know how to identify traffic control signs and barricades.

COURSE OUTLINE

The course, which includes both theoretical and practical components, kicks off with interpreting work instructions and analysing and implementing traffic plans. The next phase involves hands-on practice with the correct tools and equipment, especially stop/slow bats, to manage both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Participants will learn to adjust to different traffic conditions and correctly identify and place traffic control signs and barriers.

Our Canberra-based Traffic Control Training adheres strictly to the national standards, covering vital competency units, such as RIIWHS205E which focuses on controlling traffic using a stop-slow bat, and RIIWHS302E, a unit dedicated to the implementation of effective traffic management plans. There are also other units of competency included according to SafeWork NSW traffic work training requirements. Note we highly recommend doing the 2.5-day course to receive all the relevant qualifications in order that you become a potential valuable worker to Traffic Control businesses ie. they do not need to further formally train you.

On successful completion, you'll receive a Statement of Attainment from AlertForce, recognising your newfound skills in traffic control. This forms the foundation for obtaining your Traffic Control Licence in NSW, as well as Canberra, and is issued by SafeWork NSW under the Traffic Control Work Training (TCWT) card. For more information visit here.

Assessment involves both practical and knowledge-based components. You'll demonstrate your ability to place signs and barriers, use a stop/slow bat or hand signals, and manage pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Your knowledge of safety legislation and ability to identify traffic control signs and barriers will also be tested.

Prospective students must hold a valid driver's licence and a construction card (white card) before enrolling. Keep in mind that industry-specific assessment requirements may apply, with some sectors requiring assessors with specific years of industry experience.

After successfully completing this nationally recognised Traffic Control Training, you'll initially be issued with a Statement of Completion (SOC) and later a Statement of Attainment. However, the Statement of Completion is valid for 90 days in order to complete the practical assessment, as per SafeWork NSW regulations. AlertForce will then be responsible for submitting your paperwork to SafeWork in order for you to receive your TCWT card.

Student Reviews

Is the Nationally Recognised Traffic Control Training & Tickets Course only applicable in Canberra?

While the course is based in Canberra, the skills and knowledge gained are applicable and recognised across Australia. However, local jurisdiction requirements may vary, so it's advised to check with local authorities on specific regional compliance needs. Once you have your licence often State recognition laws allow your qualifications to be recognised in different states of Australia.

I don't have a background in construction or road management; can I still take the course?

Absolutely! While the course is certainly beneficial for those in related industries, anyone interested in becoming a traffic controller or understanding traffic management can enrol.

How often do I need to refresh my Traffic Control Certification in Canberra?

Previously accreditation for traffic controllers was only valid for three years, after which a refresher course should be taken to ensure your skills and knowledge stay up-to-date. This requirement has now ceased to be mandatory. To keep up to date though, you should be a regular industry participant.

Does AlertForce offer any assistance in creating the Temporary Traffic Management Plan required for the licence?

Yes, as part of our comprehensive Traffic Control Course, we train participants on how to create and implement Temporary Traffic Management Plans, which are a crucial aspect of traffic control work.

I already have some experience in traffic control. Can I skip some parts of the course?

While experience is highly valued, the course is designed to ensure comprehensive understanding and adherence to national standards. As such, all parts of the course are mandatory.

Is this course also suitable for organisations looking to train multiple employees?

Yes, the course is designed to accommodate both individual learners and groups. For organisations, it offers a great way to ensure all employees meet the same high standards in traffic control.

How practical is the course? Will I get hands-on experience?

Yes, the course includes a practical component that involves implementing the skills learned. We believe in a hands-on approach to fully equip our students for the field.

If I don't pass the assessment, can I retake it?

Yes, if you do not pass the assessment the first time, you'll have the opportunity to retake it. Our goal is to ensure you leave the course with a full understanding of traffic control best practices.

Can this course be used as a stepping stone to other roles within the civil construction industry?

Absolutely, the knowledge and skills you gain can definitely open doors within the civil construction and road management sectors.

How fast can I start working after finishing the course?

Once you receive your Statement of Completion (SOC) and complete any necessary local jurisdiction requirements, you can start working as a traffic controller. It is quite common for participants to be working with their SOC prior to the official licence (TCWT card) being sent out by SafeWork NSW.
