There will be 2 elements to the course. Firstly theory in the classroom, a variety of delivery methods will be employed including PowerPoint presentations, video, handouts, and q&a's. 

Then secondly you will get hands on experience having a go at the practical side for real, including using the cat and genny, putting out signage and cones, digging up the ground and laying down cold-lay.

Yes, you can carry out all the physical works covered by your units. However you need to have a streetworks supervisor assigned to the site with the equivalent supervisor units. 

There are no beginner units. Each unit delivers something different. If you have no experience, there are books you can read prior to a course or if you can get some practical work experience with a company that would benefit you greatly.
