If you're considering a career in traffic management, work health and safety or road works, a traffic control training course could take your job prospects to the next level. It can be a tough industry to crack thanks to relatively high average pay and the abundance of work available, but the right training could make you a far more attractive applicant. 

In this article we have a look at how a traffic control course could help you in your job search, and in staying safe no matter what roads you're working on. 

The course

Alertforce offers a comprehensive Roads and Maritime Services approved training course ideal for most traffic control professionals. It's nationally recognised and includes two days of theory training and one day of practical training, as well as several assessments.

The full course will cover working safely and following procedures, communication in the workplace, controlling traffic and implementing a traffic management plan. Alertforce stands by the quality of every course we deliver.

Our courses also come with a 30-day money-back guarantee and are generally 100 per cent tax deductible – a fact that will go far towards helping you to offset the costs involved. 

The pay

Due to the large amount of construction and roadwork projects underway in Australia at any given time, traffic controllers are generally in high demand. 

We can't guarantee you'll find a job after completing one of our traffic control courses, but we can promised that with this qualification you'll be considered a more attractive candidate.

Giving yourself an edge over the competition is always a good idea, no matter what profession you're working in. 

If you do manage to find a job, how much can you expect to be paid on average?

According to national job search site, adzuna, the average pay for their listed traffic controller positions sat at $62,814 at time time of writing. That's a lot of money after less than a week of training.

The job

Due to the large amount of construction and roadwork projects underway in Australia at any given time, traffic controllers are generally in high demand.

As a road safety worker, you'll be in charge of minimising risks with traffic movement, controlling traffic in a professional manner, managing traffic in emergencies and managing delays. This will include the use of a two-way radio, and working with a diverse and interesting range of people from all walks of life. 

If you're looking for the next step in your career, think outside the box and consider traffic control. Get in touch with Alertforce for more information, and to get the ball rolling on securing your new vocation.
