Traffic Control RPL for Traffic Control Professionals
This qualification is only available for experienced traffic control professionals and is specifically designed for operatives who can demonstrate that they have the skills and experience to manage traffic through and/or past a roadwork site, directing traffic with a stop/slow down bat or similar control device and who are required to setup Traffic Control Guidance Schemes (TCGSs) also known as Traffic Control Plans (TCPs) in accordance with approved Traffic Management Plans.
Eligibility for RPL
Participants must hold or have held within the last 6 months the appropriate traffic control qualifications and/or licences and it is essential that you have access to on the job evidence. This evidence will have to be endorsed by an appropriate third party, such as a supervisor or team leader who is able and willing to provide testimony as to your ability when undertaking the relevant traffic control duties.
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.
RPL Evidence Gathering Process
Once we receive verification of payment you will be sent an RPL Toolkit via email that you will be required to complete in full. The RPL Kit has detailed instructions on what you need to do in order to satisfy the RPL process, however if you get confused or stuck you will be able to contact support staff who will be able to guide you.
When you have completed the RPL Kit you will have the option to return it to us by either email or post for assessment. This assessment process will take up to 10 days to complete. When the assessor has deemed you to be competent, Admire Workplace Safety will issue you with a statement of attainment and we will process your RMS Licence Cards which will be sent to your home address by post.
