Non-practitioner? RPL? Practitioner? Category 1 roads? All sounds too confusing?

AustRoads have recently updated the temporary traffic management training framework. The traffic tickets are now based on which category road you are working on. The roads are now divided into 3 categories –

  1.  Category 1 – Urban Streets and Low Volume Rural Roads
  2.  Category 2 – High Volume Roads
  3.  Category 3 – Motorways and Freeways

Further, there are now practitioner and non-practitioner courses available. A practitioner course is for someone who will be working on the roads, whereas, a non-practitioner course is for people who need all the knowledge but will not be working on the roads.

RPL recognises any prior knowledge and experience and measures it against the qualification in which students are enrolled. The individual may not need to complete all of a training program if he or she already possesses some of the competencies taught in a program.

    • An individual wishing to enrol in this skill set must hold the unit CPCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry or its equivalent unit (e.g., Construction White Card) at the time of enrolment.

    • No, the 20 hours placement is unpaid.

    • You have 6 months from the last day of your training course to submit all documentation on completing 20 hours.

    • You will have 6 months from the last day of your training course to complete the TMI assessment.

    • No, you will be required to undertake 20 hours of on-site work under the direct supervision of a person holding this skill set and complete a logbook of activities undertaken. To complete your TMI assessment, you must complete three different Temporary Traffic Management set ups.

    • After successful completion of your 20 hours placement you must have at least a further 40 hours of experience working in a temporary traffic management workplace in a traffic controller role.

      For TMI, evidence of at least three different types of setups and practical training experience applying the relevant skills and knowledge in a temporary traffic management workplace.

    • No, this skill set may only be undertaken upon:

      • Completion of RIISS00058 Traffic Controller Skill Set for Urban Streets and Low Volume Rural Roads; and at least 40 hours of experience working in a temporary traffic management workplace in a traffic controller role and,
      • Completion of RISS00060 Traffic Management Implementer Skill Set and evidence of at least three different types of setups and practical training experience applying the relevant skills and knowledge in a temporary traffic management workplace.
    • You will receive a Statement of Attainment (SOA) for the units you complete during the course and a card will be posted to you.

    • You will be required to undergo a refresher course 3 years from the date of your accreditation.

      Austroads will provide more information on this soon. Training | Austroads
