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.

To obtain a Main Roads WA BWTM/TC accreditation, it is a requirement to hold a non-learner Western Australian or an equivalent interstate driver’s licence, except an R-N (Moped) class, or an overseas equivalent driver’s licence from a country that is recognised by the Western Australian Department of Transport. It is recommended to obtain your full driver’s licence first, and then undertake the course.

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.
