This qualification is for personnel who are required to setup Traffic Control Guidance Schemes (TCGSs) also known as Traffic Control Plans (TCPs) in accordance with approved Traffic Management Plans.
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.
Delivery and Assessment Method
After the course induction the trainer/assessor will facilitate the participants through both theory and practical sessions.
Your trainer/assessor will be assessing you throughout the day and will compile what we call a ‘portfolio of evidence’.
This portfolio will then be the basis on which the assessor will make a summative assessment of your competence.
