Traffic Management Implementation Training
The Department of Transport and Main Roads have recently completed a review of the Traffic Management Implementation course in Queensland with a number of significant changes being introduced. Civil Train, the training division is a registered provider of TMR licences for Traffic Management and Traffic Control will be introducing the changes by 1 October 2019. There are changes to the full program and the refresher program that you will need to be aware of;
- What are the changes to the Full Program?
The completion of TMR’s WPT Part 1 and 2 eLearn programs will be a requirement for the issuing of TMR’s TMI Card from 1st October 2019.
- Will this requirement be a pre-requisite to attending the training program?
No. The eLearn programs are to be completed as part of the assessment process – during the three months after attending the face to face training. Participants are to complete the three live set ups and submit a Third-Party Report during this time as well.
- Can a Statement of Attainment still be awarded to participants who have not completed the WPT eLearn Programs?
Yes. Completion of the WPT programs are to be linked to the issuing of TMR’s TMI card, not the Statement of Attainment.
Please note – In order to work on QLD Roads a TMI card is required.
To continue to be recognised as a TMI Officer in Queensland you must demonstrate ongoing industry currency relevant to the job role of a Traffic Management Implementer, as outlined in the units of competency, by completing a renewal training program before the date of expiry (TMI cards are valid for three years from date of issue)
- When was the TMI Renewal program implemented?
The program was implemented 1st October 2019.
- What are the pre-requisites for the renewal program?
- Working in Proximity to Traffic Part 1 – Awareness. Certificate of Completion
- Working in Proximity to Traffic Part 2 – Works Protection Methods. Certificate of Completion
- Currency of Industry Practice (Third Party Reports x 2; TGS, toolbox, SWMS Risk Management Plan)
- Qld TMR Traffic Management Implementation Card
- Statement of Attainment for RIIWHS302D Implement Traffic Management Plan
- What is the duration of the program?
The program consists of one full day of face to face training.
- What is the minimum number of participants?
As the renewal program is designed to incorporate group activities the minimum number of students is four.
- Can the student be enrolled in the Full Program instead of the Renewal Program?
It is no longer permissible for a TMI renewing student to be enrolled in the full program as an alternative to the renewal program or to combine renewal students and full program students in the one program. The full program currently focuses on the MUTCD Part 3 content. The renewal program focuses on industry currency, risk assessment and the application of best practice procedures in the implementation, monitoring and removal of traffic guidance schemes. In addition, students who successfully complete the renewal program including meeting the evidence requirements in the Currency of Industry Practice will be awarded with the unit of competency RIIRIS301D Apply risk management processes.
- What units of competency does this program include?
The program includes the following units of competency;
- RIIWHS302D Implement traffic management plan
- RIIRIS301D Apply risk management processes
- What is awarded after the program?
Once the student has successfully completed the program, including meeting the evidence requirements in the Currency of Industry Practice, they will be awarded the following:
- RIIWHS302D Implement traffic management plan – Certificate of Currency (COC)
- RIIRIS301D Apply risk management processes – Statement of Attainment
- Students will also receive a numbered TMR Traffic Management Implementation card, valid for three years from the date of the program completion.
