NRSWA Streetworks Reassessment

The streetworks reassessment can take place between half a day and 2 days depending on the streetworks training centre you choose. The objective of the streetworks reassessment is to refresh the candidates knowledge and give a short exam on each unit. Once this is completed the candidates streetworks card will be renewed for a full 5 years.

NRSWA Streetworks Operative Full Course

The full 5 day NRSWA streetworks operative course is for anyone who wants to undertake physical work on roads within the UK. Including excavation, backfill, reinstatement, signing, guarding and using tarmac and cold-lay materials. On any live site where work is taking place there must also be a supervisor present.

NRSWA Streetworks Supervisor Full Course

The full 5 day NRSWA streetworks supervisor training is for people moving in to a supervisory role. A streetworks supervisor is only allowed to monitor the activities of a streetworks operative and cannot undertake any physical work. On every live site, for operatives to carry out work there must legally be a streetworks supervisor present.

Please note: a person can have both the operative and supervisor qualifications which will allow them to supervise and carry out physical operative work at the same time. Previous experience of working on street works or on roads would assist the candidates but it is not essential.

Signing, Lighting and Guarding Unit 2

The signing, lighting and guarding course is for anyone who wants to put up barriers, signs, and temporary  traffic lights on roads under 60mph in the UK. The one day unit 2 signing lighting and guarding course allows you to physically undertake work. On any live site where work is taking place there must also be a supervisor present.
