Looking for a job in traffic management? This is the course for you!
Traffic Management companies are looking for good workers.
TC and TMI are two different “tickets” which were previously Level 1 and Level 2.
With more and more roads being under construction, traffic management employers are needing workers that can control traffic with a stop-slow bat as well as workers that can setup signs and devices…. So why not do both?
This short course will teach you how to do both (control traffic with a stop-slow bat and setup and maintain signs and devices on roads within QLD).
Combo Course Structure:
The TC and TMI Combo course is made up of five different parts.
- Day 1 – Traffic Control Classroom Component
- Day 2 – Traffic Management Implementation Classroom Component
- Within Three Months – Traffic Control 20 hour placement and final assessment
- Within Three Months – Traffic Management Implementation site setups
- Within Three Months – Complete Working in Proximity to Traffic – Awareness Part 1 & 2.
Day 1 – Traffic Control Classroom Component (TC)
This face to face TC session will include presentations, group activities, demonstrations and simulated and practical activities so that you can learn and then practice your new skills with the stop-slow bat in preparation for your vocational placement.
Day 2 – Traffic Management Implementation Classroom Component (TMI)
This face to face TMI session will include presentations, group activities, demonstrations and simulated and practical activities so that you can learn and then practice your new skills relating to setting up and maintaining signs and devices in preparation for the practical component.
Within Three Months – Traffic Control 20 hour placement and final assessment (TC)
This is a vocational placement on the job at a roadwork site where you will gain experience conducting a range of practical activities including performing stop-slow traffic control under close supervision. WTA have teamed up with WARP Traffic Management who will provide you the opportunity to do your 20 hour placement on their sites. During the course, we will show you what is expected and how to organise your 20 hour placement. It is your responsibility to have this completed within 3-months of training, so don’t leave it to the last minute.
Once you have completed the 20 hour placement, a trainer will come out to the site and conduct a final assessment
Within Three Months – Traffic Management Implementation site setups (TMI)
The practical component of the TMI course is separate to the 20 hour placement for TC.
You will be required to organise with your employer to complete a minimum of three separate signage setups alongside a suitably qualified and experienced TMI. These will be of varying complexity on live job sites and you will provide evidence through the completion of a third party report. One of these must include controlling site construction vehicles. This must be completed in accordance with the MUTCD and third party evidence must be submitted to Warp Training Australia for assessment within three (3) months of the course date.
If you would like to get your site setups completed ASAP, or if you are unable to arrange your three onsite setups with your employer and require assistance, please contact Warp Training Australia or book into one of the TMI Practical – Site Setup courses via the link below for only $100.
