This traffic control combo course in Sydney is for those who wish to stop and start traffic using a stop/slow bat, portable traffic light or boom gate and at the same time being able to set up, monitor and close down traffic guidance schemes (implement and manage traffic plans). You will be able to conduct more traffic management roles in comparison to just the traffic control course on its own. Please see course requirements below.

If you would like to only do traffic control – go here. If you would like to only do implement traffic plans – go here.
