Training

Our training & compliance team boast over 75 years of experience in IQA, EQA, assessor and classroom delivery; including traffic management courses and assessment.

Road Traffic Solutions have supplied traffic and event management for over 15 years, and we’re proud to share our accumulation of expertise with other organisations with our range of traffic management courses.

We have our own registered Training Centre with both SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) and Lantra Awards. We specialise in traffic management training both in the classroom and out on the road. Our instructors and assessors have a combined knowledge of over 75 years in the traffic management industry and we pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching and learning in our traffic management courses. Our team consists of Instructors and Assessors who are all highly qualified in traffic management themselves in Streetworks, NHSS 12D & NHSS 12AB. Each of them has worked in the industry for many years as a Traffic Management Operative before moving on to different aspects of traffic management within our business, and then training to become instructors and assessors.

He is also an Instructor and Assessor and enjoys delivering traffic management courses and assessments in between his event planning.

Our success

We deliver training and assessments to anyone involved (or planning on getting involved) in the traffic management industry, boasting a pass rate of 99% over the past 3 years.

As a training centre; our aim is to ensure that our learners leave our training feeling confident in their knowledge and ability, but also feel confident to carry out their duties safely.

Much of our training for businesses is to benefit people that work in the Traffic Management Industry but don’t necessarily install any traffic management, e.g. Street Works Inspectors, Project Planners, Managers and Supervisors – some of our customers include Westminster City Council, London Marathon Events, Morrison Utility Services and BT.
