If you have a current STMS warrant (not expired more than 12 months), AND you have completed the STMS NP A/B/C – R theory workshop, then in order to manage active worksites you will now need to pass the assessment for the Practicing role.

What am I required to do ?

You must understand and be able follow a TMP closely, as the entire Assessment for the Practicing qualification will be based on the TMP you will be using.

You will need to lead a crew to setup, maintain and remove an Alternating Flow Stop/Go traffic management worksite for each the categories of road in which you wish to operate – Cat A and/or B.
