Traffic management training

Traffic management training

From 1 October 2019, there will be changes to the Traffic Management Implementation (TMI) Renewal Program. Please contact one of the approved training providers for further information.

To deliver effective traffic management on our roads, the department specifies a number of targeted training courses. All of these training courses are undertaken by licensed Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). If you are interested in attending training please visit our approved training providers page.

The department has recently updated these training courses to improve the quality and consistency of traffic management at road work sites, and minimise impacts to drivers while maintaining safe working environments for all road work staff.
