Course Details

The Traffic Controller Course and Traffic Management Course are the two most common courses students complete to gain employment in the Traffic Management industry.

Legislation requires refresher training every three (3) years.

To be able to work on the road in a Traffic Control capacity to operate a Stop/Slow Bat, you will need a minimum of a Traffic Controller Licence. If that work location is a construction site, you will need a White Card (to be on a construction site).

The licence for Traffic Control Management allows you to set up and prepare a site as opposed to only using the Stop/Slow Bat.

By completing the Traffic Control Course (Combo) you can increase your chances of gaining employment.

Full Traffic Control Course details are covered in the course PDF.

If organising a onsite training, we can facilitate the Traffic Control training nationally.
