New AustRoads National Training Framework for Temporary Traffic Management (TTM)

The National Training Framework for Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) provides a nationally harmonised environment for the provision of Temporary Traffic Management training and ensures individuals working in the industry are appropriately trained and maintain currency.

The National Training Framework for Temporary Traffic Management is designed under the Vocational Education and Training (VET) framework based on Skill Sets and Units of Competencies and provides:

  • Graduated learning across the Temporary Traffic Management categories
  • Greater opportunities and a more structured genuine career path
  • Theoretical (i.e., classroom) and practical training
  • Mutual recognition – individuals who have successfully completed the training requirements in one state/territory will have this training recognised in another participating state/territory. (Please note there may be additional localised training requirements in states and territories specific to the jurisdiction).

There are three (3) Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) roles comprising of Traffic Controller (TC), Traffic Management Implementer (TMI), and Traffic Management Designer (TMD), graduated across three TTM categories, comprising in total eight Temporary Traffic Management National Training Programs with their associated Skill Sets.

The role and where the work is being undertaken, including its complexity determines the TTM category of training required.

In Class/Face to Face Delivery, Theory Assessment, Simulated Assessment, On-site Practical Work Experience and Final Practical Assessment.

Following the successful theoretical (in class/face-to-face) training, learners will be required to obtain practical learning experience and successfully complete a final practical assessment prior to a Statement of Attainment being issued.

This aims to ensure that individuals have the opportunity to gain sufficient practical experience before working independently. Practical experience requirements must be completed on declared TTM Category roads within six months after successfully completing the theoretical component.

Star Training and Assessing has partnered with multiple Traffic Management Companies across Melbourne and can provide learners the opportunity to complete their practical work placement.  The learner is also able to organise their own Workplace to complete the Practical Experience requirement.

The learner will be required to provide their own Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during their practical work placement and this may vary from site-to-site, however will commonly include two-way radios, high-visibility vest/shirt/jacket and pants, safety boots, hard hat, safety glasses and gloves.  You should confirm the mandatory PPE requirements with your Traffic Management Company directly to ensure compliance.

The requirements to complete the practical component vary dependent on the actual TTM National Training Program the learner is undertaking.

Traffic Controller (TC1) and Traffic Management Implementer (TMI1) practical training component must be completed under direct supervision on a declared TTM Category 1 road as applicable.

This means a publicly accessible and used road which is typical of what a TC or TMI would encounter under normal operational circumstances. The site, area and statutory safety requirements must always be observed during the assessment.
