Basic Traffic Controller (TC)


This one-day TC course is the Basic Traffic Controller training which covers the minimum requirements for all organisations serious about taking all practical steps to minimise traffic hazards through effective traffic management.

TC training,”Basic Traffic Control”, provides the New Zealand Transportation Agency’s (NZTA) minimum warrant which is the nationally recognised qualification (TC). A TC person is qualified to establish, manage and de-establish a worksite without a STMS qualified person being present, providing that:

  • The traffic management plan is prepared by a STMS
  • The traffic controller is fully briefed by the STMS
  • The STMS carries out a daily inspection of the site

TC Course participants undertake a theoretical assessment. A 60% or higher pass mark provides registration with NZTA as an accredited Traffic Controller. The qualification is valid for 36 months.

keep smilingTraining Aspirations’ courses are facilitated by our professional facilitators, Kieran Stella and Tony Stella. Both are exceptional trainers – participants find that learning is made easier by their facilitation style. Participants consistently tell us that they have a very positive experience because Kieran and Tony help them to understand the information covered in Basic Traffic Controller. Our participants really enjoy the training,

At Training Aspirations’ courses, we often provide a Learning Support person, Georgina O’Connor and Stephanie Croskery. The Learning Support role provides a significant contribution to participant’s learning experience in key areas such as comprehending  written material and undertaking practical work at on-site activities.
