Traffic Control Course - Renewal

RIIWHS205E

This course is for learners renewing their Traffic Control Industry Authority licence. The Traffic Control course (RIIWHS205E - Control Traffic with a Stop/Slow Bat, RIICOM201E - Communicate in the workplace & RIIWHS201E - Work safely and follow WHS policies and procedures) covers how to perform Traffic Control - Stop/Slow duties.

Introduction:

A Traffic Controller is a person accredited under the Traffic Controller Accreditation Scheme, and authorised by the Department of Transport and Main Roads Queensland (TMR), to control traffic with a stop/slow bat. The Traffic Controller provides direction and signals to traffic on how to safely move through, past or around a site using hand signals and their stop/slow bat. The sites may include the following:

  • Roadwork sites where a road closure or part road closure is necessary, or
  • Other events on the road where a road closure or part road closure is necessary (construction projects, major sporting events, fun runs, etc), or
  • Other circumstances where traffic control is required on a roadway, as per TMR requirements

COURSE REQUIREMENTS:

Prerequisites
Participants must hold a current QLD Traffic Control Licence in order to complete the course. A General Construction Induction Card (White or Blue Card) will also be required prior to enrolling in this course. It is desirable that participants be able to communicate well and have sound literacy skills.

It is a requirement of TMR that Traffic Controllers renew their Industry Authority every 3 years. This is done by completing a renewal (refresher) course, and then reapplying for your Industry Authority with TMR.



COURSE OUTLINE:

Duration:
Approximately six (6) hours theory

Theory:
Face-to-face theory is less than one day. The assessment is open book and will be completed gradually in stages as the day progresses.

Award Issued
Participants will receive a Statement of Attainment in the following units: RIIWHS205E – Control Traffic with Stop/Slow Bat, RIICOM201E - Communicate in the workplace & RIIWHS201E - Work safely and follow WHS policies and procedures.

Participants will receive the above once they have successfully completed the theory component and the simulated exercise, as well as providing the required evidence to demonstrate traffic control currency.

Participants will then need to apply at a TMR Customer Service Centre for a Traffic Control Industry Authority. Holding the Statement of Attainment in  RIIWHS205E – Control Traffic with Stop/Slow Bat, RIICOM201E - Communicate in the workplace & RIIWHS201E - Work safely and follow WHS policies and procedures, is NOT a Traffic Control Licence (Industry Authority) in QLD.

There is an additional fee ($200) payable to TMR upon application for a three (3) year Industry Authority. There is also the possibility that they will do another criminal history check (this would incur additional cost).
