Streetworks training is the only way to gain the qualifications you need to work in such a situation. In order to conduct safe and efficient work, all employers and workers must choose a New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA) certified training course before carrying out any work.
Fortunately for you, all of our NRSWA certified streetwork training courses contain all the necessary information needed to acquire certification. These courses are also held at a specialist location designed specifically for streetwork training in mind, including all the necessary equipment and tools. This ensures that all candidates are able to get full theoretical teachings and practical experience.
According to the relevant regulatory bodies, our training courses for streetwork tick all the required boxes for certification. This includes training on kerb dropping, lighting, guarding, signing, locating underground apparatus, reinstating highways, and more.
Not only this, but each and every one of our courses is monitored up and updated regularly, ensuring that they are designed with the current rules and regulations in mind, including the requirements set by the NRSWA (New Roads and Street Works Act). All of this ensures that your workers are not only compliant with the rules, but competent with their work too.
We currently have 16 different training courses on offer, all compliant with the NRSWA (New Roads and Street Works Act). While the first unit refers to supervisor/operator knowledge, units two through nine are for operators only, and units ten through 16 are for supervisors only.
Certain units must be studied depending on the type of work that needs to be certified. Fortunately, we have created a helpful list below to ensure that you know exactly what you need to brush up on.
A streetworks operative certificate will be presented to all who complete the NRSWA course. This certificate will then need to be sent directly to the SWQR Street Works Qualification Register in order to officially certify the supervisor or operator.
The SWQR will send back a photo ID, acting as proof of your NRSWA qualification. This card will be active for five years. It is also worth noting that we currently run a reassessment course for those who already have a card but it is due to expire soon. This NRSWA refresher course is for both operators and supervisors.
