WHERE are the combined traffic training courses conducted?

WHAT is needed to run this course on my site?

The practical training and assessment will involve a series of scenarios in which the trainees set up traffic control devices (such as signage, hats and bollards) and use a stop-slow bat to guide a car through each setup. Therefore, it is critical that we have access to an area which is:

  • A minimum of 10m x 25m
  • Large enough that a car can drive from one end to the other and complete a u-turn at each end
  • Safe for our trainer and your staff (appropriately sectioned off with no other pedestrian, vehicle or machinery access)

Please note that if a suitable area is not available for the duration of the course, the course will not proceed and no refunds will be provided. We want to make sure your staff get the most out of their time, so if you’re unsure if your site is suitable, please contact our office on 1800 143 343.
