This level of Main Roads WA accreditation is required by anyone operating a truck mounted attenuator. Any TMA Operators who currently hold an interim accreditation will be required to obtain RIIRTM301D Operate a truck or trailer mounted attenuator within the next 2 years.
Important Note: Employers who need to complete this training are required to supply a Truck Mounted Attenuator (TMA) for the use during training and assessment. The TMA supplied must be compliant with National & WA TMA requirements and also be fitted with a dual four point safety harness (required for training). In the event a TMA is not able to be supplied by the employer for training or is non-compliant, we can arrange a TMA on your behalf via a hire arrangement at the applicable fee, subject to availability.
In consultation with key stakeholders, Main Roads WA have developed the below Guidelines for the use of TMAs in WA. The guidelines will require the use of TMAs to protect road workers on freeways and high volume high speed roads in the metropolitan area and will commence on 1 July 2017. Download Here

Important Note: This course does attract CTF funding allowing employers to save upto 80% off course costs therefore please let us know if you are eligible when discussing requirements. AusQ Training is an approved CTF bulk biller. This allows us to pass on upfront CTF subsidies to employers when enrolling, making doing business with us even easier. This means employers don’t have to worry about more paperwork or claim forms plus keep more money in their pockets.
