Level 1 Traffic Controller (New & Refresher)

If you employ staff or are yourself employed as a worker, contractor or engineer and need to work on or near lower level roads, you will need to either manage or understand the basics of Temporary Traffic Management.

The Level 1 Traffic Controller course is a great place to start.

A Traffic Controller warrant is valid for three years from the date you successfully complete attendance at the TC course.

(Note – once expired the holder is deemed to be out of date, and can no longer fulfil a TTM role, until a refresher is successfully completed).


There are no prerequisites to achieve your first TC warrant or to renew an expired TC.
