Traffic control training is designed to teach participants how to maintain a safe work site when working near roads or any area involving motorists or pedestrians. Any projects that may put people at risk may require a qualified traffic controller to help direct the flow of vehicles and pedestrians.

 

Accredited training courses give you the skills and knowledge for implementing traffic plans, using stop/slow bats, and using proper signage to direct vehicles around the worksite. If you work in civil construction or road management, you may need to complete this training.

 

What Qualifications Do You Need to Be a Traffic Controller in Canberra?

 

To become a traffic controller, you need to complete the traffic control course Canberra and obtain traffic controller accreditation. The courses also include prerequisites. You need to present a valid driver’s license and a construction induction card (white card).

 

Do You Need a Licence for Traffic Control in Canberra?

 

Submitting a temporary traffic management plan requires a licence in Canberra. In the ACT, you need to submit and receive approval for temporary traffic control plans when your work projects affect pedestrians, motorists, and cyclists.

 

The course is intended to give workers in the resources and infrastructure industries the skills needed to use a stop/slow bat. However, the training includes a lot more than just using a bat to direct vehicles. You also learn how to implement traffic plans developed by supervisors and adjust the plan based on road and weather conditions.

The following industries are most likely to require licencing for traffic control activities:

 

  • Transport and logistics
  • Gas industry
  • Distribution and rail sector
  • Agriculture and land management
  • Construction and plumbing

 

The sector also determines the assessment requirements for the course. For example, those involved in metalliferous mining requires assessors with at least five years of industry experience. Other industries may only require assessors with one year of experience.

 

How Do I Become a Traffic Controller in Canberra?

 

The first step to becoming a traffic controller is to complete the training and receive a statement of attainment. After successful completion of the course, you may bring your statement of attainment to the nearest State Roads Authority to apply for accreditation.

 

Accreditation is necessary for obtaining a traffic controller license. The accreditation is valid for a total of three years. The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). Regulations require controllers to complete a refresher program before the accreditation expires.

 

How Much Does the Traffic Control Course in ACT Cost?

 

At AlertForce, the traffic control course in Canberra ACT costs $300 (no GST). It is a full day course, starting at 8 am and ending at about 4:30 pm.

 

The RIIWHS302D course costs $325. Another option is to take the combination course. It includes training for both the RIIWHS205D and RIIWHS302D units of competency for just $550 per person. We can also arrange a live site setup to meet NSW RMS requirements at a cost of $165 per person.

 

What Are the Training Outcomes?

 

The training outcomes for RIIWHS205D Control Traffic with a Stop/Slow Bat includes practical training for safely managing work zone traffic. To provide nationally recognised training, RTOs must follow guidelines for training and assessment. The course provides training for the following topics:

 

  • Interpreting work instructions
  • Analysing and implementing traffic plans
  • Selecting proper tools and equipment
  • Identifying and implementing devices and signage
  • Positioning signs and barriers
  • Using a stop/slow bat to direct vehicle flow
  • Controlling vehicular and pedestrian flows
  • Monitoring traffic and adjusting for conditions
  • Using clear hand signals to direct motorists
  • Using communication devices
  • Removing signs and devices
  • Cleaning up the worksite

 

The first step is interpreting and implementing work instructions and traffic plans. The plans are developed before work starts by supervisors that have completed the RIIWHS302D course.

 

During the assessment, you need to demonstrate your ability to position signs and barriers. You also need to demonstrate the use of the stop/slow bat and hand signals to direct vehicle and pedestrian flows. Instructors simulate real settings to complete the assessment.

 

The knowledge-based portion of the assessment focuses on your knowledge of various requirements. You should understand all relevant safety legislation and how to identify various traffic control signs and barricades.

 

RIIWHS302D has different learning outcomes. The course covers traffic management planning and is mostly intended for supervisors and directors. The core topics include the steps needed for developing, implementing, and monitoring traffic plans.

 

Supervisors also learn how to ensure that traffic remains controlled during the clean-up phase. The work crew needs to remain protected as they remove devices and signage. It is the supervisor’s responsibility to maintain safe conditions and ensure that everyone follows the traffic management plan.

 

In the end, RIIWHS205D is not a requirement for all construction workers. It is primarily intended for those involved in road works. You learn how to implement traffic control plans and direct vehicle flows to maintain a safe work environment.
