Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The key difference between these two accreditation’s is that the BWTM/TC accreditation allows you to implement signage and stop / control traffic, whereas the BWTM only permits you to implement signage. The BWTM/TC accreditation is our most popular course and is required to become a qualified Traffic Controller. Whereas the BWTM is more suited to job roles that work off the road, in verge areas such as surveyors, landscapers, plant operators etc.

At the successful completion of the Main Roads WA Basic Worksite Traffic Management (BWTM) accreditation, you are permitted to set up and implement all signs, in accordance with the authorised Traffic Management Plan (TMP).

Signs and devices can range from advance warning, regulatory, hazard markers, delineation just to name a few.

Yes, this can occur, and we can assist – please contact our Customer Support team for further information.

However, it is really important to advise that doing the two accreditations at different times, does result in additional time and costs.

Where possible, we recommend completing the course as a whole to save timea and costs.

To enter and undertake this training course, yes it is a requirement to hold and provide evidence of holding a White Card. This is required at the time of enrolment and to confirm your enrolment.

What Our Customers Say About Us

I choose AusQ Training for the assistance with providing a refresher course for my AWTM. They were able to offer flexibility of service. I would recommend others to AusQ Training within the construction industry seeking Traffic Management training services.

Robbie Cribbin
Project Manager - Downer

We reached out to AusQ Training as it is a contract requirement for our operators to obtain this license to perform works within 3m of a road. AusQ were able to offer the training the soonest. We now have the ability to expand the number of staff we can resource to serve our contract. I would recommend AusQ to others as it is fast access to training that meets requirements.
