Streetworks Reassessment

NRSWA Streetworks full or single unit reassessments

NRSWA Streetworks Course

Full or single unit reassessment

Who is the course for
The full or single unit reassessments are for anyone that wishes to continue to work on the roads, and whose current qualifications are due to or have recently expired. The course is generally designed for those with streetworks experience.
Although even if you’ve had a card and have not performed any highway work you are still eligible for reassessment. 
We typically advise those who are entering the 6 month period prior to their NRSWA Card expiring to schedule reassessment at their earliest convenience. This is because putting it off until the last moment runs the risk that you could miss the expiration date and become ineligible to conduct highway work. If that happens you will likely lose your insurance coverage for such work as well. 
If you have concerns that scheduling reassessment 6 months before your card expires will result in you losing 6 months of certification, fear not. Your new card will be valid for 5 years plus whatever time was left on your previous card, whether that is 2 weeks, 2 months or 6 months. 

 If you need more support with your refresher please contact us. 

You will have to complete a timed online exam for each Streetworks unit you are being refreshed on. For the full course the 1-to-2-day reassessments you can expect to go straight to test only. The 2–to-3-day reassessments you can expect a classroom refresher before the tests. For single unit reassessments these can be completed in half a day. 

The online exam for each unit will contain 20 multiple choice questions and you will need to answer 80% of them (16 out of 20) correctly in order to pass and receive your new NRSWA Card. You will be given 45 minutes to answer the questions and should you fail you will have to schedule another reassessment. 

After successful completion of the course you will be awarded a new certificate from the awarding body, from either one of the following; CABWI, SQA, Lantra or City and Guilds. Your refreshed qualification will then be registered on the Street Works Qualifications Register (SWQR), and you will receive a new SWQR ID card. 

How long does the qualification last
Your certificate and card are valid for a further 5 years and will show the units you are qualified in to work on the roads. 
Can I schedule a full assessment instead of reassessment? 
Some who have only worked occasionally over the past 5 years or perhaps not performed Streetworks at all for several years may feel that a simple refresher course is not sufficient. Fortunately, everyone whose NRSWA Card is about to expire has the option of choosing the easy and quick reassessment or the far more involved full assessment. The full assessment encompasses all the theoretical and practical coursework required for first-time NRSWA Card applicants. 
Do I receive a new NRSWA Card immediately? 
It’s up to you. If your existing card was not scheduled to expire for several months you can keep it until it does, at which time a new NRSWA Card will be issued and sent to you. If you are qualified for multiple units each with a different expiration date the new card will contain expiration dates for all your different qualifications. Once your new card arrives simply cut up and dispose of your existing card.
