STMS Category A + B (non-practising)

Overview

Connexis - Unit Standard ref: 31962

This course provides the base knowledge for working on Category A and/or B road environments. It is a 1-day theory course for each of the Category A or B non-practising components. We also offer a 1.5-day combined Category A & B non-practising course, for those who require both categories.  

Once you have completed this course, you can arrange for the onsite STMS Practical Assessment
Please note: until you have completed and achieved the STMS Practising Assessment for each road category (i.e. CAT A, B, or C) you will be non-practising only and cannot act as an STMS in charge of a TTM site.

Others who move to TTMP, Auditor, etc can complete the theory component/s only (not the onsite practical assessments) as you only need the theory courses to progress. 

 

Topics include:


Category A:
  • Deliver site safety briefings and inductions
  • Calculate layout distances for Category A road environments
  • Set up, maintain and remove TTM for static operations (shoulder closures, two-way two-lane closures and multi-lane closures)
  • Complete mobile operations and closures
  • Set up, maintain, and remove TTM for semi-static operations and closures
  • Conduct special activities

Category B :
  • Deliver site safety briefings and inductions
  • Calculate layout distances for category B road environments
  • Set up, maintain, and remove TTM for static operations including shoulder closures, lane closures, lane diversions, and ramp closures
  • Complete mobile operations and closures
  • Conduct special activities.

Prerequisites

The STMS Universal warrant is the minimum prerequisite to attend this course. For those wishing to gain the practising STMS Cat A and/ or B warrant, they must first hold the practising TMO warrant.

An onsite STMS is also required to have endorsements for specific activities/specialist TTM equipment (eg portable traffic signals, VMS) if they oversee operations using these and there is no other worker on-site with the required endorsements.

 

Warrant

At the end of this learning block attendees will have acheived the following non-practising warrants:

  • STMS (A) -NP. This is required to go on and achieve the practising warrant, STMS (A).
  • STMS (B) -NP. This is required to go on and achieve the practising warrant, STMS (B).
