The NRSWA operative course provides the knowledge and skills you need to carry out street works safely.
This streetworks course is designed for anyone working on roads and highways. Overall, the streetworks training will educate you on how to reduce accidents on the site and reduce road fatalities.
It is a legal requirement that you have a NRSWA qualification before working on a street works site.
The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 requires that each set of street works have at least one qualified operative.
In most cases, you will have to show your swqr card to be able to work as an operative on a street works site. You get your swqr card by attending and successfully passing a NRSWA operative course.
This streetworks course units includes a theory session and practical training. The key certificates are LA and OI.
