QLD Traffic Controller Renewal Course (TCR)

QLD Courses, Traffic Management QLD

To renew your traffic controller accreditation in Queensland, you are required to demonstrate currency of industry practice as a Traffic Controller and successfully complete the Transport and Main Roads (TMR) approved training program. Your Traffic Controller Industry Authority Card must be renewed every three (3) years. It is your responsibility to ensure that you maintain current accreditation when performing traffic controller duties.

The renewal process is designed to ensure you can demonstrate (prove) the skills and knowledge required to work safely as a Traffic Controller and to make sure that you are still competent and up to date.

Course Outcome:

On successful completion participants receive a Statement of Attainment for RIIWHS205D Control traffic with stop-slow bat. This is the documentation required to apply for re-accreditation as a Traffic Controller with the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Participants will then need to apply at a TMR Customer Service Centre for a Traffic Control Industry Authority.

There is an additional fee  payable to TMR upon application for a three (3) year Industry Authority.
The current application fee for licences can be found here.
