Refresher training involves attending only theory session of our 2 day traffic course. Prior to starting the course, you will need to supply your current traffic control card to our head office, so we can confirm refresher training is the most appropriate option for you.
Those participating in refresher training must still complete the practical assessment, however this can be completing in your own workplace. Your employer and supervisor must sign off on 3 traffic management plans you have implemented at your workplace. MCFE will then contact your employer to verify details.
Once you have enrolled in the course, the practical assessment will be emailed to you so you can complete it prior to attending the theory session.
