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.
