Main Roads WA acknowledges the widespread concern regarding COVID-19 and the challenges this health issue poses to the temporary traffic management industry.
To ensure that industry is able to adapt at this time, to deliver road works programs, and to provide support for training providers, Main Roads WA has implemented the following short-term measure;
Training & Accreditation
The expiry date of all traffic management accreditations that expired, or are due to expire, from 1 March 2020 to 30 June 2020 have been extended on the Main Roads database for 3 months. This will allow individuals unable to attend refresher training, due to the impact of COVID-19, to continue with their traffic management duties.
This will also allow Main Roads, and training providers, time to prepare for the below two initiatives:
- Interactive online training methods for the theory component of refresher and new traffic management accreditations will be permitted for training providers who implement appropriate methods in delivery of this training.
- Practical assessments (for refresher only) to be done using video evidence, as is permitted by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads. The footage must be CLEARLY visible in a video format, time and date stamped, and the trainee must be able to be identifiable at all times.
Note: the online training methods are only considered to be appropriate for the period in which social distancing measures are mandated due to COVID-19. Main Roads will continue to review this changing situation and will provide updates as the situation evolves.
