NRSWA Reassessment

The NRSWA Reassessment training courses are for operatives and supervisors who want to renew their NRSWA certificate and swqr card. Delegates can take the NRSWA reassessment even if their card has expired, for up to five years.

The certificates for operatives and supervisors we offer are applicable to delegates working in England and Scotland. There is no requirement to hold any particular combination of certificates. You can tailor these certificates to the work you actually do.

All certificates are delivered by tutors who have years of experience and knowledge working within the Construction, Utility and Civil Engineering sectors.

Why Take the NRSWA Reassessment?

The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA) requires that there is a qualified operative with street works qualification on site while street works are in progress.  The supervisor does not need to be on site at all times and can supervise more than one set of works.

You have to complete the reassessment if you have previously completed any of the NRSWA courses, and your swqr card has expired. You must complete your training within five years of the card expiry date, as you cannot work on a street works site while your card is expired.
