This course provides training for personnel who are required to design new traffic management plans and TCGS/TCP’s for road works, produce major upgrades of standard plans and/or inspect traffic control plans on road construction sites.
This course does not qualify a participant to control traffic with a Stop/Slow bat or set up work with traffic control plans.
This program is suited to experienced traffic control/management operators.
All training and assessment is carried out by RMS Approved Training Providers and qualified RMS Approved trainer/assessors.
For further information, please refer to the RMS traffic control course overview.

- Development of TCGS/TCP’s
- Development of 2 (two) Traffic Management Plan projects
- Provision of workplace samples and documentation
- An RMS Statement of Completion (SOC) certificate which allows them to design new traffic management plans and TCGS/TCP’s for road works, produce major upgrades of standard plans and/or inspect traffic control plans on road construction sites.
- A Statement of Attainment (SOA) for the following skills sets:
The Statement of Attainment (SOA) is required for application we submit to the RMS for the photo-card licence. The licence has a 3-year expiry.
- Collect all required information about a given roadwork project to enable the preparation of a TCGS/TCP.
- Design a TCGS/TCP, based on risk assessment, statutory and regulatory requirements, standards, road authority requirements and project brief.
- Select and modify a TCGS/TCP based on risk assessment, statutory and regulatory requirements, standards, road authority requirements and project brief.
- Draw up a TCGS/TCP to recognise other graphical representations such as pedestrian movement plans, vehicle movement plans, and notification of authorities.
- Determine the recommended spacing between signs and traffic control devices in line with standards; measure width of trafficable surface; calculate edge clearances to barriers, cones and clearance to work personnel.
- Incorporate Environmental Management Plans
- Conduct an onsite check and inspection of the plan and to identify any unexpected hazards/risks.
- Identify approvals required; identify approval agencies, types of approvals for roadway access, railway reserve access, authority to install signs on roads, variation to standards.
- Understand speed, environment, type and class of vehicles, traffic density, sight lines, environmental condition, weather patterns and surface type
- Monitor and interpret control systems to apply to the drawing, selection and design
- Use approved methods and follow recognised local legislation
- Use the site/location assessment, distinguish topographical landmarks and carry out authorised risk control
- Collate traffic volume data type and class of vehicles
- Determine lane capacity, road network performance and lane closure restrictions
- Identify impacts from any concurrent or adjacent works
- Identify times and dates of any planned public events that may result in increased or redistributed traffic patterns
- Identify affected stakeholders and type of notification required and prepare notifications
