People believe that being a traffic controller sounds like an easy job. However, there are several requirements that need to be met, including having to complete Traffic Control training. But why do you need to take the course for something as simple as using the stop-slow bat? As it turns out, a traffic controller has several important responsibilities.
The Importance of Traffic Control Training
The Traffic Control course provides participants with the skills and knowledge to ensure the safety of motorists and other road users. In addition to that, you will also be able to keep other traffic controllers and fellow workers safe on the road. Moreover, the training shows you how to properly operate the stop-slow bat to control traffic.
Being a traffic controller means watching out for everyone on the road and it is important to understand safety. This is why completing the course is the only way to get proper certification to become a traffic controller.
What are the Requirements for the Traffic Control course?
Participants must provide a valid form of photo I.D. like a driver’s license or a passport. You must also present a valid USI (Unique Student Identifier) and complete the LLN (Language, Literacy and Numeracy) assessment. Lastly, all participants must wear comfortable closed-in shoes in order to perform practical activities safely.
