We're excited to announce that we're delivering the new Traffic Control Training Program.


The Traffic Control Training RPL process has been specifically designed for the Professional Traffic Controllers that have a wealth of experience.

They can draw this experience from:

  • Their current and past workplaces.
  • Life experience
  • Education and or previous training
  • Previous accreditations and photo cards issued by relevant roads authorities.

You will need to demonstrate your skills and knowledge to one of our SafeWork NSW approved assessors through the RPL application process.

If successful, you will be issued with the same credentials as if you had undertaken the full unit as an enrolled student.

The students must complete an Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) application form prior to enrolling either online or phone (02) 4262 7072.
