The goal of the NRSWA Supervisor London course is to provide Supervisors with the certification they need to carry out their duties in accordance with the New Roads and Street Works Act of 1991. Upon successful completion of the course, Supervisors will have the knowledge and skills to effectively safeguard themselves, their fellow workers, others that access or transit the work site and members of the surrounding community.
Who is the course for
It is vital that those responsible for excavation and reinstatement work on public highways are able to ensure their own safety and the safety of those around them. The NRSWA provides clear guidelines for accomplishing that and our Supervisor London training course enables Supervisors to obtain the necessary knowledge and skills.
The full 5 day NRSWA supervisor course in London is for anyone supervising all works on the road, including excavation, backfill, reinstatement and signing and guarding. A streetworks supervisor plans, monitors and supervises the works and the operatives. The supervisor does not undertake any physical works.
The course is delivered through a combination of classroom learning and practical activities at the NRSWA London centre over 5 days. You will then be required to complete assessments and a short online exam for each unit.
After successful completion of the course you will be awarded a certificate from the awarding body, from one of the following; CABWI, SQA, Lantra or City and Guilds. You will then be registered on the Street Works Qualifications Register (SWQR), and you will receive your own SWQR ID card.
Upon completion of the NRSWA Supervisor London course, participants will:
- Have a thorough understanding of NRSWA guidelines and ACOP standards.
- Be able to effectively monitor Operatives during the performance of their duties.
- Be able to ensure a safe environment for site personnel, passersby and the surrounding community.
How long does the qualification last
Your certificate and card are valid for 5 years and will show the units you are qualified in to work on the roads.
Why do I need to take the Supervisor London course?
By taking the course you will obtain the knowledge and skills essential to being able to lead your road works team effectively. Certification will also enhance your career trajectory, perhaps increase your earning potential and, if you are currently seeking work, will enhance your employment prospects.
Are there any prerequisites?
Those participating in the NRSWA Supervisor London course should be experienced Supervisors with a proven ability to perform their duties to SQA standards. If you are a road works Supervisor but are unsure whether your level of experience is sufficient to take the NRSWA Supervisor course contact us prior to booking a place.
