Where can I take this course?

In-house Courses

We currently only offer the New Roads and Street Works for Supervisors as an in-house course in the classroom. We work with a variety of NRSWA providers across the UK who deliver the course on behalf.  The course can be arranged for a maximum of 8 delegates per tutor.

We price each in-house course on a case-by-case basis; we consider the course location and number of delegates for each quote. For a  quote, complete the in-house training enquiry form on this page.

Further development

Successful completion of the NRSWA Training course will result in you gaining a City & Guild or CABWI (location dependent) Street Works Card. The card is valid for five years. To renew, you will need to attend a 2-day requalification course.

If you work in a physical role, you may want to complete the NRSWA Operative course instead?  You will learn all the aspects needed to work safely on the street works site.

You can also attend individual units on their own such as CAT & Genny / Cable Avoidance and Signing, Lighting and Guarding.
