Main Roads WA (MRWA) Temporary Traffic Management Accreditation is valid for three years, those seeking re-accreditation are required to provide evidence of active industry engagement from the preceding 12 months.
Re-accreditation is required to ensure practitioners are kept up-to-date with any changes in legislation, standards and guidelines etc. and also changes to technology and work practices over the previous three years.
MRWA provide a grace period of 3 months post expiry to be eligible to attend renewal/re-accreditation course/s.
Once your accreditation has expired you are unable to perform the duties of the accreditation until you have renewed your accreditation or have completed a full training course again.
Effective 1 August 2021, MRWA Introduced eligibility changes to temporary traffic management reaccreditation training. These requirements are in addition to current practices:
Traffic Controller, Basic Worksite Traffic Management and Worksite Traffic Management Accreditation Holders are required to submit documentary evidence of experience including the following as a minimum:
- Details of 3 worksites with supervisor contact details that can be verified by the Registered Training
- Provider, (date, worksite location, description of works, contractor, name and phone).
- a completed and signed SWMS used on a worksite by the applicant.
- minimum 1 of the following risk assessment participation or pre-start documentation
- Daily diary signed by the participant or details of the TMP number, contractor, etc. to be verified by the RTO.
- AWTM Re-Accreditation
- Documentary evidence of experience must include details of at least three (3) TMPs that you have prepared, endorsed or approved that have been implemented at a worksite.
Kelyn Training Services require you to submit the evidence a minimum of 10 days prior to course commencement to enable sufficient time to validate the evidence provided.
Basic Worksite Traffic Management – Non-Practitioner
People that do not directly undertake TTM roles at worksites, such as parking inspectors, surveillance officers, grader operators, verge mowers, etc., but have previously gained BWTM accreditation may find it difficult to provide evidence of active industry engagement when applying for re-accreditation. In these cases rather than re-sitting the full BWTM course, they may sit the refresher course and gain BWTM non-practitioner accreditation without the need to provide evidence of industry experience.
This will allow them to implement signs and devices associated with short term low impact works, see AGTTM Part 5 and section 8 of the Traffic Management for Works on Roads Code of Practice, that form part of a TMP.
Note: all other requirements for BWTM re-accreditation remain the same.
