RIIWHS201D Work safely and follow WHS policies & work procedures
RIICOM201D Communicate in the workplace
RIIWHS205D Control traffic with a stop/slow bat
RIIWHS302D Implement traffic management plan
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 and employees who are required to setup Traffic Control Guidance Schemes (TCGSs) also known as Traffic Control Plans (TCPs) in accordance with approved Traffic Management Plans.
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 and RMS Yellow Card Licence will be sent an Traffic Controller/Implement TCP 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 before the training day and presented to the Trainer/Assessor for assessment.
Delivery and Assessment Method
Training Days – All participants to attend pre-determined training days. Re-certification participants should have the completed Traffic Controller/Implement TCP Logbook/Third Party Report in their possession for assessment. After the course induction the trainer/assessor will healthordisease.com facilitate the participants through both theory and practical sessions.
Your trainer/assessor will be assessing you throughout the day and will compile 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 be directly observed in their workplace undertaking appropriate traffic control duties. Participants who have never held a Traffic Control qualification or licence will be given a Traffic Controller/Implement TCP 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.
